"The curious work now offered to the world was prepared by Mr. Ritson, with a view to immediate publication, a short time before his death; and the character of the writer is sufficiently established to justify the editors hope of its favorable reception. The difficulty of the subject may be partly estimated from doubts having been actually entertained by the author, during his early researches, as to the identity of his hero, and fears lest the real Arthur might not, after all, be found." --from "Advertisement"
