1883. In this story of Roland as the author proposes to tell it, he introduces you to some of the most pleasing of those tales of France. The poems and legends which embody them were written in various languages, and at widely different times; but in them two names, Charlemagne and Roland, are of very frequent occurrence. Roland, the nephew of the Charlemagne of romance, and his companion in all great enterprises, is unknown to history. Yet he is the typical knight, the greatest hero of the middle ages. His story is not a mere transcript of the old romances. Illustrated.
