MALORY, Sir Thomas
La mort d'Arthur : the most ancient and famous history of the renowned Prince Arthur and the knights of the Round Table
R. Wilks. 1816 1ed King Arthur Lancelot Knights Round Table Malory Morte D’Arthur 2v In 1485, “Le Morte Darther” or, “The Death of Arthur” was first published – the first time the traditional tales of King Arthur, Guinevere, Lancelot, Merlin, and the Knights of the Round Table finally was available to be read, instead of just told as a mythical story. It is, without equal, the best-known work of Arthurian literature and is a principal source for many plays, operas, and modern stories. This very rare 1816 pirated edition was printed in two-volumes unlike the authorized three-volume version. According to the advertisements in the official printing, the publisher warns against a ‘rival edition, in two volumes’ (Paden A5). However, that notwithstanding, this spectacular edition includes the expected facsimile of the 1634 Stansby edition.
