This a great English fourteenth-century classic and source book of the Arthurian legend cycle, which is reset in modern type and fully illustrated in a single-volume edition and for the first time as a top quality specification paperback. The paramount source of all stories about King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, of Merlin, Camelot and the Holy Grail. "Le Morte D'Arthur" was first written in 1175 by Sir Thomas Malory, a Norman scholar about whom very little is known. This revised edition is not only highly illustrated, but confronts and corrects the somewhat confusing editorial changes made by the first publisher of the book in 1485.
