HIGH HISTORY OF THE HOLY GRAIL

TRANS BY SEBASTIAN EVANS    Book Number: 91755    Product format: Paperback

First published in 1898, this was translated from a 13th century manuscript written in Old French, but the original author is unknown. This is the story of Sir Perceval and the Holy 'Graal', the stirring story of a quest with all the important Arthurian characters - Queen Guinevere, Lancelot, Gawain, and of course, King Arthur himself, as well as plenty of castles, fights, swords and knights. 'Thereon, lo you, two damsels that issue forth of a chapel, whereof the one holdeth in her hands the most Holy Graal, and the other the Lance hereof the point bleedeth thereinto. And the one goeth beside the other in the midst of the hall where the knights and Messire Gawain sat at meat, and so sweet a smell and so holy came to them that they forgot to eat.' The translator stated in 1898 'They will find here printed in English for the first time what I take to be in all good faith the original story of Sir Perceval and the Holy Graal, whole and incorrupt as it left the hands of its first author.' 298pp paperback.
