Bulfinch's Mythology (Barnes & Noble Omnibus Leatherbound Classics) Hardback
by Steven Zorn
Part of the Barnes & Noble Leatherbound Classic Collection series
One of the leading popularisers of classical learning in the nineteenth century, Thomas Bulfinch made the myths and legends of the ancient and medieval world available to American audiences through his three decisive works, The Age of Fable, The Age of Chivalry, and Legends of Charlemagne, collectively published and widely known as Bulfinch's Mythology.
This deluxe leatherbound gift edition contains not only the full text of Bulfinch's definitive works, but also dozens of colour illustrations and paintings.
A banking clerk by day, Bulfinch spent his nights skillfully weaving often disparate versions of classical and medieval mythology into a coherent whole.
The thoroughness with which he combed through his sources made his mythological books standard reference guides for many years, while the vigor of his storytelling enthralled generations of readers.
Written to 'teach mythology not as a study but as a relaxation from study', these timeless volumes span the ages.
