First edition, one of 1,500 ordinary paper copies, of a total edition of 1,800 copies. In 1892, seeking to emulate the books of the Kelmscott Press, John M. Dent commissioned the 20-year-old Beardsley to produce this edition, work that took the young artist 18 months to complete. "In Le Morte d'Arthur Beardsley learnt his job, but the result is no bungling student's work If he had never illustrated another book, this edition of Morte d'Arthur could stand as a monument of decorative book illustration" (John Lewis, The Twentieth Century Book, pp. 148-9). The book was issued in 12 parts in wrappers, with the purchaser given the choice of sending it back to Dent, who bound them in vellum or in this cream cloth case-binding with gilt blocking designed by Beardsley, or to a binder of their own.
