Le roman du Saint-Graal publié pour la première fois d’après un manuscrit de la bibliothèque royale par Francisque Michel.


Octavo: xviii + 168. Untrimmed copy, limited to 300. In a lovely posterior half vellum and marbled boards. Superb condition without fault. Top edge gilt.

This is the famous verse epic by Robert de Boron (also spelled in the manuscripts "Roberz", "Borron", "Bouron", "Beron"). He was a French poet of the late 12th and early 13th centuries who is most notable as the reputed author of the poems Joseph d'Arimathie and Merlin. Though little is known about him outside of the poems he allegedly wrote, his works and their subsequent prose redactions impacted later incarnations of the Arthurian legend and its prose cycles, particularly due to his Christian backstory for the Holy Grail., retelling the Arthurian tales, the search for the Holy Grail and various other mysteries.

Robert de Boron appears as the fictional character Boron in Umberto Eco's novel 'Baudolino'.

It is presented as a first publication from the MSS and is an important and of course rare text for those interested in medieval literature.

A splendid copy.
