Dale, The Tinker, Eric O Lincoln, The Sheriff of Nottingham, and Maid Marian.Louis Rhead was an English illustrator and author who is best known for Bold Robin Hood and His Outlaw Band. In this work, Rhead connected the events of the story with the customs and manners of the age in which it is supposed Robin Hood lived. The exact facts behind the legend are uncertain, but most people believe that Robin Hood must represent a real person because of the sheer volume of the texts. The earliest Robin Hood texts date to the fifteenth century. The legends recount that Robin Hood was an outlaw who stole from the rich to provide for the poor. It is generally felt that most of the characters, such as Friar Tuck, and Little John, were added by various authors to enhance the story.* This ebook is an exact, high-definition copy of a pre-1923 print version of the book. Unlike other e-copies of the book, it is not a transcription, which may be full of typographic errors.* Exact means that if the print version has any inscriptions or previous owners name in the front of the book, so, too, will this e-book- blank pages that often separate chapters might be left in- and, any pages that may have a folded corner or other, similar factor might be included, too.* In other words, no changes or as few as possible have been made to either the illustrations or the text in order to bring you a book that is as close to the original as possible.
