Notes

First Golden Cockerel edition, number 440 of 550 copies printed (the first 75 copies being specially bound), presenting a new translation of the ancient Welsh epic The Mabinogion (first fully brought into modern English by Lady Charlotte Guest 1838-1845) alongside illustrations by Dorothea Braby. The Mabinogion encompasses Arthurian legend (though originally collected two-to-three centuries before Malory's 15th-century Morte Darthur) intermixed with much pre-Christian Celtic mythology.
