Can anyone recommend a nice deluxe illustrated edition of Le Morte D'Arthur?

I don't know about deluxe, but there was a Cassell hardback edition in 2000, I think, with colour and monochrome illustrations by Anna-Marie Ferguson, which was touted as the first illustrated edition by a female artist. It was edited by John Matthews, but I gather it wasn't a scholarly edition but based on earlier out-of-copyright modernisations (but I may have this wrong).

The ISBN is 0760755213, but this edition doesn't seem to come up in LT's lists when I search; I can't believe nobody has it catalogued! The date is 2004, not 2000, apparently.

Easton Press published a one-volume edition with illustrations by Aubrey Beardsley currently available. E/P also published a 4-volume edition with all 48 full-color paintings by William Russell Flint that is currently out of print. You can read the flyer for that edition on this post.
