Comments: Very negligible wear to headcap and tail. Spine very slightly cocked.

Synopsis: In a time when there were damsels in distress to save, and mythical dragons to slay, King Arthur and his knights of the Round Table were there to render justice in the face of any danger. From the incredible wizardry of Merlin to the undeniable passion of Sir Launcelot, these tales of Arthur and his knights offer epic adventures with the supernatural, as well as timeless battles with our humanity.

Keith Baine’s splendid rendition of Le Morte d’Arthur faithfully preserves the original flavor of Malory’s masterpiece – that of banners and bloodshed, knights and ladies, Christians and sorcerers, sentiment and savagery. It remains a vivid medieval tapestry, woven about a central figure who symbolizes the birth of an age of chivalry.

Le Morte d’Arthur remains an enchanted sea for the reader to swim about in, delighting at the random beauties of fifteenth-century prose.” – Robert Graves
