Description

There is no other book like this one.

Description to come! Just know the price is compared to the other copies available which are selling without pictures, which jump from a few copies at low numbers to many copies at high numbers. Mine is somewhere in the middle with pictures and information so it's your best bet, and you bet I recommend this book to anyone interest in literature, knighthood, medieval times, etc. English and history scholars will love it. :) - 11/30/16 - clyn

Until then, here's some information about the fascinating author: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_F._Young

And here's the straight information you might be looking for:

-Full title: A Knyght There Was, The Evolution of the Knight in Literature
-Author: Charles Moorman
-Format: Hardcover, dust jacket, first edition.
-Condition: Nearly mint but for a few notes (VERY few, could hardly find them) in pencil on certain pages in the book.
-Publisher: University of Kentucky Press, Lexington
-Copyright: University of Kentucky Press, Lexington 1967
-Date published: 1967
-Provenance: I got this from a school book sale at UConn, I'm guessing English professors were getting rid of some of their books. This must have been in 2012 when I was a Junior, so I've had it a while.
-Pricing: As I said above, the price was determined on the availability of copies (or unavailability is more like it) and the fact that all copies on sale right now come with no pictures and are described as used or "good" etc., untrustworthy in my opinion. There are copies starting at and going for over 80 dollars, so I priced mine relatively. It is a clean almost pristine copy and has a dust jacket, which makes it more valuable, and it is important work/scholarship/research that could be lost if not for these few copies available online right now. This also entered into my decision.

FAQs

Absolutely! I'm willing to do anything to get this book to you, but I will not write on it. If it is not in the condition you want, I know preservation techniques and will certainly oblige as best I can. You just need to let me know.
I will wrap the book any way you want. It is special and so are you, you deserve it! I will also write cards, include photographs, anything you'd like that would make this transaction more, well, you.
I won't tell you how to care for your book, but as to how they are cared for now, they are housed in two places -- some are wrapped in plastic in my main room in the part of the house that used to be a quaint B&B, lined on lovely old wooden bookshelves; others are stacked in piles or leaning on cool, creative and different bookends all round the room, and all are given care, attention, and kept away from my dog :)

Others sit in my library, in built-in authentic 1800s wooden and glass-door library shelves that line the walls in a secluded room in a historic home on the shore. With vintage, warm lamplights over the tiny marble fireplace, the library's windows catch plenty of sunlight--the books are in good homes and will arrive undamaged.
If the book comes later than expected this does not mean it was sent late. Every book is sent within 1-3 business days, unless one of the days is a Sunday, then it could be an extra day. This applies to International orders as well, but they might take longer to get to you than in-country orders. If there is a problem, please bring it up with UPS or see Etsy's policies.
I am more than willing to hunt down a specific book for you. This can take time, however, and would be a matter of personal back-and-forth on the site so you would have to keep in contact. There is no guarantee. I'm good at finding things however, and if I cannot find it to sell to you myself I will direct you to where I can find it online, if I can.

Important to note, however, that I may have it in my holdings already so it ALWAYS helps to check in with me. Listings come up continually, and it may just be waiting here to get processed and put up.
Contact me directly via the site and I will do my absolute best to help correct it. There should be no problems.
Always willing to make new friends and take on new jobs or opportunities -- this business does not stop me from working a full or part time job, and I am currently looking, so please contact me! Dempseylynch@gmail.com. I am definitely interested in talking with you and love meeting new people (especially book lovers of course).
Sure! Although the books are priced the way they are and are worth that amount based on a lot of factors (condition compared to others available online, if there are any available online or if it is the only one, age and whether it is signed or special in some way, etc.) I am always willing to hear you out as to why you think the books price is off, and work with you as best I can. I cannot guarantee the price will change, that is bad for my business, but I will listen to you. Don't be afraid to reach out. The worst that can happen is I will say no.

I put the reasons behind my pricing method for each item at the end of the listing so check that out if you're curious too :)
