Inhaltsangabe: This book was originally published prior to 1923, and represents a reproduction of an important historical work, maintaining the same format as the original work. While some publishers have opted to apply OCR (optical character recognition) technology to the process, we believe this leads to sub-optimal results (frequent typographical errors, strange characters and confusing formatting) and does not adequately preserve the historical character of the original artifact. We believe this work is culturally important in its original archival form. While we strive to adequately clean and digitally enhance the original work, there are occasionally instances where imperfections such as blurred or missing pages, poor pictures or errant marks may have been introduced due to either the quality of the original work or the scanning process itself. Despite these occasional imperfections, we have brought it back into print as part of our ongoing global book preservation commitment, providing customers with access to the best possible historical reprints. We appreciate your understanding of these occasional imperfections, and sincerely hope you enjoy seeing the book in a format as close as possible to that intended by the original publisher.
Inhaltsangabe: We owe this our English Epic of Le Morte Darthur to Sir Thomas Malory, and to William Caxton the first English printer. Caxton?s Preface shows (what indeed would have been certain from his appeal to the ?Knights of England? at the end of ?The Order of Chivalry?) that however strongly he, ?William Caxton, simple person,? may have been urged to undertake the work by ?divers gentlemen of this realm of England,? he was not less moved by his own love and reverence for ?the noble acts of chivalry,? and his deep sense of his duty and responsibility in printing what he believed would be for the instruction and profit of his readers, ?of whatever estate or degree.? But to Sir Thomas Malory he gives all the honour of having provided him with the copy which he printed. And ever since, for more than four hundred years, successive generations have approved the fitness of Caxton?s choice. For it is Malory?s book, and not the older forms of King Arthur?s story which we still read for enjoyment, and for the illustration of which scholars edit those earlier books. Only a true poem, the offspring of genius, could have so held, and be still holding its ground, age after age.
