A Traveler's Guide to the Kingdoms of Arthur, Fairbairn, Neil
7 Fairbairn, Neil A Traveler's Guide to the Kingdoms of Arthur
Historical Times 1983 0237456567 / 9780237456566 Hardcover used 157 pages, 7 1/2 inches by 9 1/2 inches tall 
cover: "A Traveler's Guide to the Kingdoms of Arthur is a practical and beautiful guide book to the vast world of Arthurian fact and legend. From Barry Hill, north of Dundee, to the Foret de Paimpont in Brittany, the visitor is taken to nearly 200 places associated with this great hero and king, for Arthur is remembered throughout Britain and Brittany in mountains, castles, cairns, tombs and even 'round tables'. With precise directions and map references, the book tells the reader how to discover Arthur's evocative world. But the pleasure is as great for the armchair traveler as for the motorist. More than 250 photographs offer a magnificent record of landscapes and monuments little changed since the Dark Ages, a kingdom that Arthur himself would still recognize."

Condition: Book is in good condition, the pages are crisp and clean. Binding is tight. Cover has rubbing wear, and wear to the edges and corners.
