London, Collins, 1938. A very good copy. Uncommon proof copy. An important book in the Arthurian arena. "One of the finest children's fantasies of the 20th Century" [Clute & Grant, p1011]. Later collected as part of the seminal Once and Future King. An important book, and uncommon in pre-publication format. Illustrated throughout by the author. The basis for the Disney movie of the same name and the 1960 musical Camelot. Bound in plain wraps. Some foxing throughout, a little wear to the edges and a lean to the spine. We traced one copy in this format having sold at auction (2007). [7872, Hyraxia Books].
