Quarter bound in publisher's black cloth over red boards, gilt (red) lettering and intricate decoration on spine, embossed enchanted cup medallion on cover. This is the story of Tristan and Isolde, from Malory's Morte d'Arthur, told in modern romantic prose in novel form. When Tristan sailed into Ireland, he was near death from the wound which had won him knighthood. His sword, too, bore a wound, for a piece of it still remained in the head of a great champion who lay dead at Tristan's hands. In Ireland his destiny awaited him. There he first saw Isolde, who would be the great love of his life, and a symbol of love for all time. For her he would challenge the fierce Saracen knight, for her no risk would ever prove too great. A fresh retelling of the greatest and most tragic of the love stories of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. .
