Blue cloth with light stain on front cover. Binding tight, square, internally fine, unmarked, spine sunned, frayed and tanned. With five full-page B/W illustrations and numerous vignettes by Arthur Rackham. It is a reprint of the 1916 edition.

Sir Thomas Malory’s Le Morte d’Arthur is the basis for the vast literature concerning King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. Malory compiled, translated, and edited the tales from earlier French sources, and all later authors who added to Arthurian legend are indebted to his work.

This handsome edition features five B/W of Arthur Rackham‘s finest illustrations, and Malory’s text was edited for modern readers by English scholar Alfred W. Pollard. An essential treasury edition for any collector of Arthurian myths or Rackham enthusiast.
