Traditional scholars thought that they are the same due to the fact that their names are similar.
In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content: It appears as a competitor to a multiplicity of editions old and recent that are widely used for teaching and, one hopes, for reading.
These come in all lengths and degrees of difficulty or helpfulness. The earliest, emphatically not a student or starter edition, is the magisterial three-volume Works of Sir Thomas Malory, the first to be based on the Winchester manuscript, and increasingly refined through to its third edition revised by P.
The one-volume student edition of that followed, under the title Malory: Works; being complete, unmodernized, and in paperback, is commonly chosen both for reference and for courses, despite its comparative austerity. The third, still widely used as a class text, is the shorter and more student-friendly 'selected tales' of King Arthur and his Knights.
Le Morte Darthurthe first full new critical edition since Vinaver; my own Oxford World's Classics edition of slightly abridged, to about three-quarters the length of the original ; and various editions of Parts 7 and 8 alone, notable among them being those of D.
Brewer and P.
Fieldrevised Of editions of Caxton, Janet Cowen's two-volume Penguin edition is perhaps the most widely used; less well known, though in a single cheap paperback, is the Wordsworth Classics edition by Helen Moore This is by no means an exhaustive list, but it is enough to provide the basis for some comparisons.
For the editor, the major question is which text, Caxton or Winchester, to use. Caxton has the advantage over Vinaver of being out of copyright, whether in the original or in H. Oskar Sommer's reprint.

It is especially likely to be used for illustrated versions. Moore identifies the text she uses as Pollard's modern-spelling version of Sommer, and adds her own paratextual material. Winchester is available in the Early English Text Society facsimile, but that has to be supplemented from Caxton at the very least for [End Page 95] the opening and closing quires that are missing from the manuscript, and for improved readings or missing phrases throughout.
Since Vinaver did so full a comparison between the different texts and the sources, every later editor has to take account of his work, and it is not unknown for 'the manuscript' to be a silent periphrasis for 'Vinaver's edition.
He also used the Pierpont Morgan copy of Caxton and its facsimile for variants and emendations. If which text to use is the biggest question, the point from which an editor starts may be whether, or how much, to modernize; and teachers too are likely to have that in their sights as the major consideration in choosing an edition.
All the complete editions of Winchester Vinaver's two, and Shepherd'skeep the original spelling, as does Field's edition of books 7 and 8.
Oxford World's Classics had to be persuaded to accept a modern-spelling version rather than a full update, and it is the earliest untranslated text in the series. All the paperback editions of Caxton likewise modernize spelling.
Modern spelling needs less glossing than old, but editors vary greatly in their comprehensiveness Cowen offers eleven short columns, Moore twenty.
