Description: "The legends of King Arthur are probably based upon stories of the brave deeds of a British general called Arturius, who fought the Saxons in the sixth century. Arturius became the subject of many heroic tales and these were told by minstrels as they travelled from place to place.
People have always been fascinated by the mystery and romance of the Arthurian legends and will continue to be so because no one will ever know where fact ends and fiction begins."

Superb full-colour illustrations throughout capture the magic and drama of the story.

Glazed pictorial covers are lightly creased and rubbed along their extremities. The pages are somewhat creased/wavy along the bottom, but remain very bright, and haven't a jot of foxing or hint of tanning. Appears to be a former school/classroom book, as an inventory number has been inscribed in the corners of the inside cover and title page.

Measures 20 cm × 20 cm (8″ × 8″). Large 8vo. 32 pp.
