This critical edition of the text brings together for the first time full manuscript variants and the results of recent palaeographical and codicological work on the manuscripts. It differs from earlier editions in attempting to identify textual originality from the quality of variant readings, and in giving grounds, in the analysis of variants, for the identification of the likelier derivative variant

Le morte Darthur. Sir Thomas Malory's book of King Arthur and of his noble knights of the round table by Thomas Malory ( Book )
20 editions published between 1969 and 2004 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Le Morte D'Arthur is Sir Thomas Malory's richly evocative and enthralling version of the Arthurian legend. Recounting Arthur's birth, his ascendancy to the throne after claiming Excalibur, his ill-fated marriage to Guenever, the treachery of Morgan le Fay and the exploits of the Knights of the Round Table, it magically weaves together adventure, battle, love and enchantment. Le Morte D'Arthur looks back to an idealized Medieval world and is full of wistful, elegiac regret for a vanished age of chivalry. Edited and published by William Caxton in 1485, Malory's prose romance drew on French and English verse sources to give an epic unity to the Arthur myth, and remains the most magnificent re-telling of the story in English
