About This Item

First edition, first impression (Collins, 1958).

Publisher's original dark blue cloth with lettering to spine in gilt. Very faint off-setting and a few areas of faint browning to endpapers, a beautifully preserved, fine copy otherwise in a near fine and unclipped dust jacket with a few instances of minimal wear to edges, and no restoration of any kind.

A superb and clean example. Rare in such excellent condition.

Synopsis

The Once and Future King is an Arthurian fantasy novel written by T. H. White. It was first published in 1958 and is mostly a composite of earlier works. The title comes from the supposed inscription of the marker over King Arthur's grave: HIC IACET ARTHURUS REX QUONDAM REXQUE FUTURUS — "Here lies Arthur, the once and future king."
