London, Collins, 1958. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A fine copy. First edition of White's complete Arthurian series, based on Malory's Morte d'Arthur. Collects The Sword in the Stone, The Queen of Air and Darkness, The Ill-Made Knight, and The Candle in the Wind. Lin Carter praised the book as 'single finest fantasy novel written in our time'. No real flaws of note, some offsetting to the endpapers. A superior copy of a book that is fairly common, but rare in this condition. [8372, Hyraxia Books].
