First edition, first impression, of the most significant contribution to Arthurian literature in the 20th century, reinvigorating the tales for a new and younger audience. The novel was adapted by Disney into an animated film in 1963, and at various times by the BBC for radio.

Initially intended as a stand-alone work, the success of the novel led to White expanding it into a tetralogy of Arthurian novels, The Once and Future King.
