Title: Malory's le Morte D'Arthur: King Arthur and the Legends of the Round Table: A Brilliant Prose Rendition by Keith Baines
Description: NY: International Collectors Library, 1962. First Edition Thus. First Printing. Hard Cover. Full navy blue simulated leather with gilt decoration and borders on spine and both covers; satin page-marker sewn in (still folded). "The edition on which this rendering of Malory's Le Morte d'Arthur is based is the Winchester Manuscript edited by Eugene Vinaver and published by Oxford (The Clarendon Press), in three volumes, in 1947; also in the Oxford Standard Authors series, one volume, in 1954. It is important to distinguish this edition from the Caxton Manuscript known popularly through the Everyman edition, differing as it does both in content and layout. The purpose of this book is to provide a concise and lucid rendering of Le Morte d'Arthur in modern idiom for the benefit of those students and general readers who wish to obtain a firm grasp of the whole." .
