The celebrated medievalist William Morris was among the first writers to combine supernatural elements with worldbuilding, creating the precursors of modern fantasy fiction.
In his final novel, he envisions the tale of two lovers, separated by a broad river as well as an invading army. A captivating blend of chivalric romance and wizardry, this volume is a facsimile of the highly ornamented Kelmscott Press edition.
