London, Awnsham & John Churchil, 1695. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. [xx], 296, [iv] - being the prefact, text and index. A somewhat important work in Arthurian literature, and in speculative fiction in general. Whilst it was written in support of William of Orange, it still serves to help maintain the most famous of English myths. So however tedious the text is (I got through a couple of dozen pages), it is an important work and deserves to have its place retained in the study of the myth. Near fine, early if not contemporary boards - bound in full calf - rebacked somewhat recently with newer endpapers, though still themselves old. Some wear to the spine tips and where the rebacking has been undertaken. A couple of marginal notes. Leaves largely in good shape, tightly bound - a very attractive copy overall.
