Description

Excerpt from Johns Hopkins University Circulars, Vol. 22: December, 1902 There are certain literary fictions which have spread from coun try to country with wonderful rapidity, and have soon become a permanent factor in the world's literature. One of these is the story of Merlin, which first appears in Geoffrey of Monmouth about the year 1135 A.
