New York: Barnes and Noble, 1961. Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Second American Edition. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Very Good Hardcover Fascinating Arthurian Book that seeks to see the historical in the mythical and vice versa. The boar hunt for Twrch Trwyth in Culhwch and Olwen can be seen by the author as a slave raid in 835 Ragnar Lad brok who lovingly called himself 'The Old Pig" (Same Viking in great History channel 'Vikings' show) Very good shape has a few very small library rubber stamps on first free end paper and title page, else clean and nice. No Pocket, except a hint of residue and No spine numbers. No underlines. No writing in text. Tight binding gilt lettering.. Very interesting book. Useful Appendix with dates for every Arthurian tale old and new..
