ADD TO WISHLIST

Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 1930. First Edition. First Impression. A near fine copy. A presentation copy from the author to journalist and writer Thomas Moult. Presented by way of a letter from Eddison and a slip from the publisher. The letter makes for a charming read wherein Eddison shows concern for his 'portrait' of the 800-year-old tale. Eddison's book is an important milestone in the history of the Icelandic sagas given that it was the first adaptation of the tale in English (there was an earlier translation, which Eddison condemned as being unreadable). Condition: the supplied jacket is in fine shape with just a little wear to the corners and spine tips. Price-clipped. The boards are faded to the spine and a little nonuniformly to the upper board. Nice internally. The compliments slip is foxed and the letter is a little toned. [8869, Hyraxia Books].
