Le Morte D'Arthur

The Winchester Manuscript

Sir Thomas Malory
Edited and abridged with an Introduction and Notes by Helen Cooper

Oxford World's Classics

The greatest English version of the stories of King Arthur, Le Morte D'Arthur was completed in 1469-70 by Sir Thomas Malory, "knight prisoner." This edition is the first designed for the general reader to be based on the "Winchester manuscript" which represents what Malory wrote more closely than the version printed by William Caxton. Extensively annotated, this edition is highly user-friendly.
