The Illustrated Encyclopaedia of Arthurian Legends.
The Illustrated Encyclopaedia of Arthurian Legends. The Arthurian legends: An illustrated anthology. Its beautiful illustrations and designs are a saving grace-it makes a good coffee table book, but if you are looking for a book that includes correct and thorough information, I would recommend Christopher Bruce's Arthurian Names Dictionary or Norris J. Lacy's New Arthurian Encyclopedia. 6 people found this helpful.
Ronan Coghlan has done a who's who on Grail Lore, with wonderful illustrations by Courtney Davis. Coghlan includes names from often obscure and/or hard to find Arthurian legends, and he notes his sources. Very readable, it lists all the characters surrounding Arthur and the myths and legends legends of the Knight of the Round Table. My only complaints is that he does not say where in his sources he found the name (so sometimes you have to go on a bit of a scavenger hunt), he's missed a couple of rare sources I wish he'd included, and he does not cite instances of the names outside Arthurian material (which is sometimes important).

A study of Arthurian romance and legend which draws together the different strands of Arthurian myth, from sources as diverse as Geoffrey of Monmouth, Malory, Chretien de Troyes, the Mabinogion, and the English Gawain cycles. Coghlan, though an idiosyncratic author (his books range from Robin Hood to cryptozoology, from Sherlock Holmes to an excellent dictionary of Irish Christian names) is an enthusiastic Arthurian, no doubt aided by his stint as a dealer in secondhand and antiquarian books trading as Excalibur Books.
