Sir Thomas Malory's Le Morte d'Arthur is the basis for the vast literature concerning King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. Malory compiled, translated, and edited the tales from earlier French sources, and all later authors who added to Arthurian legend are indebted to his work. This handsome edition features 16 of Arthur Rackham's finest color illustrations, and Malory's text was edited for modern readers by English scholar Alfred W. Pollard. An essential treasury edition for any collector of Arthurian myths or Rackham enthusiast. Film fans will also cherish this deluxe hardcover: the stories have inspired numerous movie adaptations, including the 2017 release King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, directed by Guy Ritchie and starring Charlie Hunnam, Jude Law, Eric Bana, Djimon Hounsou, and Annabelle Wallis.
