A beautifully packaged and affordably priced edition of this classic, accessible guide to world mythology, unabridged and complete.
Thomas Bulfinch collected and interpreted the legends of the world for everyday people, so that those who lacked extensive schooling could still understand the mythological allusions that fill classic and contemporary literature.
He first published Bulfinch's Mythology as three separate volumes in the 1850s and '60s; the first book appeared as a single volume in 1881, and has remained one of the most trusted English-language interpretations of Greek and Roman mythology, Arthurian legend, and medieval romance ever since. Our Cornerstone Edition of Bulfinch's Mythology offers readers an easily portable, complete collection of all three volumes--the only such edition of this beloved anthology currently available.
