Gutenberg — Epics and Romances of the Middle Ages

This is a pretty big book with all sorts of different legends mostly from continental Europe.  Dietrich of Bern (who I've never heard of) gets nearly a 100 pages and a bunch of other lesser heroes get about 30 pages each. Then it has Sigfried and the Ring Cycle ( (no Roy though), Beowulf, Roland and other Carolingian heroes, then a bit on King Arthur and finally ending with a guy named Tannhauser.

The illustrations are nice, but seemingly too small to use.
