King Arthur will see Yvain's lion, and raise him TWO

I was looking up something completely unrelated to this website (I swear!) and stumbled upon this:

The Boy's King Arthur: Sir Thomas Malory's History of King Arthur and His Knights of the Round Table. Edited for Boys* by Sidney Lanier, 1922

A couple sidenotes: I’m rather amused by how grumpy Arthur looks (I guess it's post-G/L), and since when is armour made of scales?

However, let’s take a closer look at those lions:

This is the BOY’S King Arthur. It’s for children. Are they trying to scar them for life?

*Note that this is for BOYS. It is so much for BOYS that they said it twice. Any girls reading this blog, AVERT YOUR EYES.
