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.
