    • Very well explained (introduction) and fascinating! The magic of ancient legends revives in my hands when reading it! Shoud be hardcovered, instead of paperback. Arthur and his knights deserve it!


    • This is a review of . I haven't read numerous other editions, so I can't compare this, but what I can say is that you'll be a richer person for reading this book.
