LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Oxford University Press, London - second printing ISBN:0192541633, 1974. Hardcover, 5½" x 8¾", with dust jacket. Previous owner's name lightly to ffep. Jacket in protective covering. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD price-clipped dust jacket. This present text supersedes and largely displaces for students of the Arthurian legends Caxton's 'Le Morte D'Arthur'. In this second edition in the Oxford Standard Authors series, the text reproduces that in Professor Vinaver's revised three-volume Oxford English Texts edition (Clarendon Press, 1967), omitting the full-length introduction and the detailed critical apparatus. This single volume contains the full text, with a brief introduction, a revised and somewhat shortened glossary, and fifty pages of explanatory notes on each of Malory's eight romances. The basis of the text is still the unique fifteenth-century manuscript found in 1934 in the Fellows' Library of Winchester College. The Winchester text is much closer than Caxton's to what Maslory actually write (it also establishes that Caxton freely edited and recast Malory's work.)
