        Yes indeed, what a splendid Capture of Tyme we have here.  King Arthur, Excalibur, Sir Lancelot, Lady of the Lake, the Knights of the Round Table and the wondrous Camelot!  Don't forget Guinevere; what a hotty she must have been to have such a starring role in a land of long ago.  It is all here; in what is arguably the best account ever given of a tyme long, long ago.  Certainly it is the best illustrated with woodcuts by Robert Gibbings on every page of all three volumes.  Oh, did I mention this is #727 of only 1500 of these wondrous tomes ever printed? - and signed by Robert Gibbings!  Hard to go wrong with these literary wonders.   Quite the distinctive set of books indeed!
