The King's Story Book (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The King's Story Book I am willing to admit that in a few cases in the pre sent volume the appeal has not resulted so well as could have been desired. Robert Louis Stevenson's story of the Black Arrow, Dr. Conan Doyle's story of Sedgmoor, Sir Walter Besant's account of the Derwentwater rebellion, and others, at once occur to the mind as gems one would have liked to see placed in the same setting with Scott, Thackeray, Charlotte Bronte, and the rest. But even with these omis sions, due to the inexorable law of copyright, not to editorial choice, the present collection of historical stories will, I think, be found of value as well as of interest.
