Descripción

Robin and His Merry Men: Ballads of Robin Hood by Ian Serraillier was published by Henry Z. Walck, Inc., in 1970. Not an ex-library copy, this 6" X 9 3/4", 64-page, thought-to-be First U.S. Edition offering is in G+ condition. Physically speaking, this offering is really in better shape than G+, but for some random marginal notes, all in pencil, on some 5-6 pages, that must be mentioned. There is, too, some very modest yellowing of endpapers front and back as well as pages of text(either that, or the book may well have been printed on cream-colored or beige stock to begin with). I must mention right off that THE REAL STARS OF THIS BOOK are the dozen or so Sketches in black and white, but, especially, the four(4) Drawings in full page, full color, which are just exquisitely done, by one Victor G. Ambrus. They are, Reader, worth the price of this slender offering by themselves, in my humble estimation. As for the volume's content, "[This book was] first published in England in 1969. [It's a] companion volume to 'Robin in the Greenwood', [and is a] retelling, in verse, of the ballads of Robin Hood"(from reverse side of main Title Page). This book is presented as a collection of some 25 narrative poems of varying lengths, all organized in four, distinct parts, or sections: "Guest of Honor", "A Sackful of Silver", "The Sheriff's Revenge", and "The King's Pardon". More people than not, it seems, are familiar with the story of Robin Hood--all of the familiar names/faces are present and accounted for, after all(Robin, Little John, Will Scarlet, Friar Tuck, the Sheriff of Nottingham, etc.). Nicely written verses, peppered with beautifully rendered illustrations.Thanks!!. N° de ref. de la librería 005661
