Excellent. I was just about to reread Howard Pyle's version.

there are myriad books about Robin Hood - the RITSON 2 volume collection of surviving ballads, a James Clarke Holt study from
3 decades ago which seems well received.
Anyone familiar with the literature, please provide a guide to
what is worthy of attention ??? Thanks!
Thomas.

John Matthews' previous edition is very well researched and interesting dealing with both fact and fantasy. This new expanded version seems even more so
