Fine Collectible Condition Green Dublin Institute For Advanced Studies 1976 First Edition Clean 83 pp. NO writing at all. NOT a library copy.

In the castle feasting halls it spread to the warriors and ladies with the enlightened King Arthur and his kingly wise adviser, Merlin. Fine hardcover 83 pp.Irish Text English Translation.
