The book: This 1868 First Globe Edition of "Le Morte Darthur" by Sir Thomas Malory, edited by Sir Edward Strachey, presents a significant historical text in a form revised for contemporary readers. "Le Morte Darthur" is one of the most famous and enduring legends of King Arthur, his knights, and the Round Table, compiling numerous tales of chivalry, romance, and adventure into a single narrative. This edition, published by Macmillan and Co., aims to make the original Caxton edition more accessible through modernized spellings and updated punctuation while retaining the majestic and archaic style that characterizes Malory's work.

The author: Sir Thomas Malory (c. 1415 – 14 March 1471) was an English writer, the author or compiler of Le Morte d'Arthur (originally titled The Whole Book of King Arthur and His Noble Knights of the Round Table). Since the late 19th century, he has generally been identified as Sir Thomas Malory of Newbold Revel in Warwickshire. Occasionally, other candidates are put forward for authorship of Le Morte d'Arthur.

The editor: Sir Edward Strachey (1812–1901) was a noted literary figure and editor who took on the task of revising Malory's text, seeking to preserve its richness while enhancing readability for the Victorian audience. His editorial decisions were instrumental in bringing this classic of English literature back into the public eye.
