Printing Details

First hardback edition (first issued as a Penguin paperback in 1953). Hardback in dustwrapper. 20.5 × 14cm, 283pp.

Roger Lancelyn Green's novel weaves together the many legends surrounding King Arthur into a single narrative. Green felt that Thomas Malory's version of the story, Le Morte d'Arthur, was a loose collection of separate stories and so attempted to relate each legend so that the entire story would have a beginning, middle and end, and employing many sources in addition to Malory. This copy is illustrated throughout with papercuts by Lottie Reiniger, who as well as being an artist, was a German film director and the foremost pioneer of silhouette animation.
