First edition, first printing, of the Moncrieff translation, retaining the rare jacket. Moncrieff "is, with Constance Garnett, the most celebrated of twentieth-century translators into English. He attempted... in the assonant verse of the Song of Roland to respect both form and meaning, bringing readers into contact with something foreign and archaic. These versions were much praised in his day" (ODNB).
