Yes, I have read the novel--and its individual components in their original versions--many times. White, as author uses anachronisms because he is a 20th century author who wrote his books for a contemporary audience. He was not attempting to write in the voice of someone from any mythic or historic period. The only "in story" anachronisms come from the character Merlyn (as White spells it), because it is explained that he lives backward.
So a character in Sorkin's "Camelot" using an anachronistic word like "scientist' is different from White using it in auctorial voice in his novel. That was my point.
