Timeless in their appeal, the Greek myths have fascinated generations. This superb collection is an abridged and illustrated edition of A.R. Hope Moncrieff's “Classic Myths and Legends”, including such well-known tales as Theseus and the Minotaur, Perseus and Andromemnon. For the ancient Greeks the sun rose and set because Phoebus-Apollo drove his dazzling chariot daily across the sky. Winter came in those months of the year when Persephone, daughter of the earth goddess Demeter, descended into the under-world. Helped or hindered by the gods, human heroes were also the subjects of legendary tales, many of them representing a particular quality: the cunning of Odysseus, for example, the beauty of Helen or the courage of Antigone. These ancient myths are brought to life with a vast array of fascinating illustrations, showing the diverse ways in which the classic heroes have been portrayed over the centuries. The wealth of images spans over 3500 years, from the ancient "Mask of Agamemnon," to the surreal "Metamorphosis of Narcissus" by Salvador Dali. Over 200 images have been drawn from a range of sources; ancient architecture, sculpture and vase painting, the works of the Old Masters and the Pre-Raphaelites, and the early illustrated editions of the epic poems of Homer and Ovid. “A Treasury of Classical Mythology” is a book for every member of the family, from the art historian to the student of literature and legend. It is a source book of the tales of ancient Greece and also offers a panorama of the visual masterpieces they have inspired. CONDITION: NEW. Unblemished except VERY slight shelfwear to dustjacket. Pages are pristine; clean, crisp, unmarked, unmutilated, tightly bound, unambiguously unread. Condition is entirely consistent with a new book from an open-shelf bookstore environment such as Barnes & Noble. Satisfaction unconditionally guaranteed. In stock, ready to ship.

PLEASE SEE PUBLISHER, PROFESSIONAL, AND READER REVIEWS BELOW. PUBLISHER REVIEW: REVIEW: A. R. Hope Moncrieff (1846-1927) was a prolific author and editor, who devoted most of his output to school stories and adventures for boys. After studying law in Scotland, he worked as a teacher before writing more than 200 books under a variety of pen names. In addition to this version of myths of antiquity, he has also published “Tales of Knights and Heroes” and “The Old Tales of Chivalry”. This book includes references to The Argonauts, Theseus, The Tragedies of Thebes, Echo and Narcissus, The Tale of Troy, The House of Agamemnon, The Adventures of Odysseus, Cupid and Psyche, Phaethon, Perseus, Meleager and Atalanta, Hercules, Pygmalion and Galatea, The Rape of Persephone, Orpheus and Eurydice, and Midas. PROFESSIONAL REVIEW: REVIEW: Sumptuously illustrated with many full color, full-page prints, this is an entertaining and education overview of the classical Greek myths. Sure to stimulate both intellect and appreciation for art, there are many splendorous pieces of art with these covers, from ancient art to Medieval and Renaissance interpretive paintings from classic myths. Truly a treat for the senses! READER REVIEWS: REVIEW: Wow! The art is great! Beautiful full color pictures of ancient masterpieces. A useful reference as well, especially suited for young readers and those who are just being introduced to the classics. The illustrations and pictures do so much to convey both the flavor and content of the ancient Greek mythological world. I always ship books Media Mail in a padded mailer. The charge for this particular book reflects the actual USPS rates for Media Mail and a small charge for materials. Domestic rates include USPS Delivery Confirmation (you might be able to update the status of your shipment on-line at the USPS Web Site). 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, I will combine multiple purchases at a greatly discounted rate. Canadian rates and international rates are higher but I assure you they are as reasonable as USPS rates allow. Rates vary from country to country, you can email or message me for a quote. We do offer HUGE combined shipping discounts, on average (for domestic shipments) each additional book will cost about $1.50. 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. 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 domestic shipments (and most international) shipments include a USPS delivery confirmation tag; or are trackable or traceable, and all shipments (international and domestic) 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). 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.
