It was first published in 1958 and is mostly a composite of earlier works written between 1938 and 1941; The book is divided into four parts: The Sword in the Stone (1938); The Queen of Air and Darkness (1939) (published separately in somewhat different form as The Witch in the Wood); The Ill-Made Knight (1940) (which is the longest book and focuses mostly on the character Lancelot); The Candle in the Wind (first published in the composite edition, 1958). A final part called The Book of Merlyn (written 1941, published 1977) was published separately following White's death; Film, television, and theatrical adaptations: Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe's 1960 musical Camelot (which was made into a movie in 1967) is based mostly on the last two books of The Once and Future King)
    • found: SparkNotes website, August 13, 2014(The Once and Future King, T.H. White; Although The Once and Future King was White's best-selling novel, three of the four books that make up the completed work were first published independently: The Sword in the Stone in 1938; The Witch in the Wood, later renamed The Queen of Air and Darkness, in 1939; and The Ill-Made Knight in 1940. The fourth book, The Candle in the Wind, first appeared in 1958, when it was published in the completed The Once and Future King. White also wrote a fifth book, The Book of Merlyn, in which Merlyn and Arthur discuss the issue of war, using the animals that Arthur had known as a child, but it was rejected by White's publisher. That book has since been published but has never been considered equal to White's classic novel. White's novel is the basis for the classic Lerner and Lowe musical Camelot, which debuted in 1960, and for the animated Disney film The Sword in the Stone, which premiered around the time of White's death) - http://www.sparknotes.com/lit/futureking/
