T. H. White, a biography (SIGNED)

Warner, Sylvia Townsend

£30.00

From the dust jacket: “‘The best thing for being sad is to learn something,’ said Merlin in ‘The Sword in the Stone.’ Quoting this maxim from his best-known book in a lecture given during the last year of his life, T. H. White went on to explain how, throughout his life, he had armed himself against disaster by exploring new fields of knowledge. . . . . One continuing preoccupation was his interpretation of the Arthurian legend, which he developed into the four books of ‘The Once and Future King’ – eventually to inspire the American musical ‘Camelot.'”
