Geoffrey of Monmouth - The History of the Kings of Britain - ( Item 127782 )
Published in London by Folio Society. 2010. First Thus. Very Good+ Hardback. Spine has a slight lean. No inscriptions or bookplates. Near Fine slipcase. Slight marks to panels of slipcase. Introduced by Richard Barber. Translated by Lewis Thorpe. Bound in buckram. Blocked with a design by Neil Gower. In his seminal chronicle, Geoffrey of Monmouth traces the history of Britain, 'best of islands', from its legendary foundation by the Trojan king Brutus, through the Roman occupation, to the heroic age of Arthur and the coming of the Saxons. Presented and read at the time as a historical account, it is in fact a beguiling mixture of fact, myth and legend. The History of the Kings of Britain is a thrilling narrative of heroic kings and monsters, dramatic sea-scapes and dark forests, of battles, blood and prophecies. Above all, however, as its name suggests, it is a highly influential work of history to rival Bede or Livy.
