PUBLISHER REVIEW: REVIEW: The deities of the ancient world, from the famous denizens of Olympus to anonymous river nymphs and sea monsters populate the pages of this classic guide. A richly readable and informative history, it is drawn mostly from the epics of Homer and the works of Apollodoros, an Athenian scholar of the second century. Not only does it define the myths in terms of their influence on Western literature, it also depicts the role of the deities in everyday life, from the earliest tribal rites to the grand festivals of Graeco-Roman civilization. Each of the gods, primary and lesser, receives an individual chapter that recounts both the Greek origins and the later Roman adaptations. PROFESSIONAL REVIEW: REVIEW: This reader-friendly guide to classical mythology, the most comprehensive single-volume treatment of its kind, will prove popular both in and out of the classroom. Not only does it define the ancient myths in terms of their influence on Western literature, it also describes the role of the deities in the daily life and worship of the ancient world from the earliest tribal rites to the height of Graeco-Roman civilization. Each of the primary gods of Olympus receives an individual chapter that reviews the Greek origins and details the later Roman adaptations. The lesser gods appear here as well, such as Aesculapius, the god of health and healing; Pan, the frolicsome woodlands god, the heroic figure of Hercules, and sea sprites of every description, from gentle river nymphs to the wantonly destructive Sirens. Unabridged republication of “Olympos: The Gods of Greece and Rome”, published by G. P. Putnam's Sons & H. Grevel & Co., New York and London, 1891. Index. From famous denizens of Olympus to anonymous river nymphs and sea monsters, the deities of the ancient world populate the pages of this resource. Richly readable and informative, it defines the myths in terms of their influence on Western literature, and depicts the role of the deities in everyday life. Top-notch, highly recommended. READER REVIEW: REVIEW: I first read an early 1900's copy of this book as an aid in my school library and found myself sitting on the counter reading it over and over, just because. A must have if you are taking a class or just love the ancient stories, or are a Harry Potter buff. There’s mention of Minerva and a demi-goddess named Hermione. Very fun stuff, informative and educational. I always ship books Media Mail in a padded mailer. This book is shipped FOR FREE via USPS INSURED media mail (“book rate”). The shipment will include free USPS Delivery Confirmation (you might be able to update the status of your shipment on-line at the USPS Web Site and free insurance coverage). If you are concerned about a little wear and tear to the book in transit, I would suggest a boxed shipment - it is an extra $1.00. Whether via padded mailer or box, we will give discounts for multiple purchases. International orders are welcome, but shipping costs are substantially higher. Most international orders cost an additional $12.99 to $33.99 for an insuredshipment in a heavily padded mailer, and typically includes some form of rudimentary tracking and/or delivery confirmation (though for some countries, this is only available at additional cost). There is also a discount program which can cut postage costs by 50% to 75% if you’re buying about half-a-dozen books or more (5 kilos+). Rates and available services vary a bit from country to country. You can email or message me for a shipping cost quote, but I assure you they are as reasonable as USPS rates allow, and if it turns out the rate is too high for your pocketbook, we will cancel the sale at your request. ADDITIONAL PURCHASES do receive a VERY LARGE discount, typically about $5 per book (for each additional book after the first) so as to reward you for the economies of combined shipping/insurance costs. Your purchase will ordinarily be shipped within 48 hours of payment. We package as well as anyone in the business, with lots of protective padding and containers. All of our shipments are sent via insured mail so as to comply with PayPal requirements. We do NOT recommend uninsured shipments, and expressly disclaim any responsibility for the loss of an uninsured shipment. Unfortunately the contents of parcels are easily “lost” or misdelivered by postal employees – even in the USA. That’s why all of our shipments include a USPS delivery confirmation tag; or are trackable or traceable, and are insured. We do offer U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail, Registered Mail, and Express Mail for both international and domestic shipments, as well United Parcel Service (UPS) and Federal Express (Fed-Ex). Please ask for a rate quotation. We will accept whatever payment method you are most comfortable with. If upon receipt of the item you are disappointed for any reason whatever, I offer a no questions asked return policy. Send it back, I will give you a complete refund of the purchase price (less our original shipping costs). Most of the items I offer come from the collection of a family friend who was active in the field of Archaeology for over forty years. However many of the items also come from purchases I make in Eastern Europe, India, and from the Levant (Eastern Mediterranean/Near East) from various institutions and dealers. Though I have always had an interest in archaeology, my own academic background was in sociology and cultural anthropology. After my retirement however, I found myself drawn to archaeology as well. Aside from my own personal collection, I have made extensive and frequent additions of my own via purchases on Ebay (of course), as well as many purchases from both dealers and institutions throughout the world - but especially in the Near East and in Eastern Europe. I spend over half of my year out of the United States, and have spent much of my life either in India or Eastern Europe. In fact much of what we generate on Yahoo, Amazon and Ebay goes to support The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, as well as some other worthy institutions in Europe connected with Anthropology and Archaeology. I acquire some small but interesting collections overseas from time-to-time, and have as well some duplicate items within my own collection which I occasionally decide to part with. Though I have a collection of ancient coins numbering in the tens of thousands, my primary interest is in ancient jewelry. My wife also is an active participant in the "business" of antique and ancient jewelry, and is from Russia. I would be happy to provide you with a certificate/guarantee of authenticity for any item you purchase from me. There is a $2 fee for mailing under separate cover. Whenever I am overseas I have made arrangements for purchases to be shipped out via domestic mail. If I am in the field, you may have to wait for a week or two for a COA to arrive via international air mail. But you can be sure your purchase will arrive properly packaged and promptly - even if I am absent. And when I am in a remote field location with merely a notebook computer, at times I am not able to access my email for a day or two, so be patient, I will always respond to every email.
