by Sir Thomas Malory
Sir Thomas Malory c. The title was originally used only for the eighth and final chapter of the work, which was called The Whole Book of King Arthur and His Noble Knights of the Round Table , but Caxton used it for the book as a whole. Most of what is known about Malory stems from the accounts describing him in the prayers found in the Winchester Manuscript of Le Morte d'Arthur. He is described as a "knyght presoner", distinguishing him from the other six individuals also bearing the name Thomas Malory in the 15th century when Le Morte d'Arthur was written. However, all these are replaced by Caxton with a final colophon reading: "I pray you all gentlemen and gentlewomen that readeth this book of Arthur and his knights, from the beginning to the ending, pray for me while I am alive, that God send me good deliverance and when I am dead, I pray you all pray for my soul.
