Review:

The quality of the illustrations is uniformly first rate, and their generous use, along with Professor Snyder's clear prose, makes this an important addition to the libraries of specialists and generalists alike. . . . We are all in Professor Snyder's debt for his contribution of such an important and useful study of the Arthuriad.
