Howard Pyle's King
Arthur and his Knights
Book 1 Conclusion
So endeth this Book of King Arthur which hath been told by me with such joyousness of
spirit that I find it to be a very great pleasure, in closing this first volume of my
work, to look forward to writing a second volume, which now presently followeth.
In that volume there shall be told the history of several very noble worthies who were
of the Court of the King, and it seems to me to be a good thing to have to do with the
history of such noble and honorable knights and gentlemen. For, indeed, it might well
please anyone to read such an history, and to hear those worthies speak, and to behold in
what manner they behaved in times of trial and tribulation. For their example will
doubtless help us all to behave in a like manner in a like case.
