Overview

The Atlas of Legendary Places is a celebration of this earthly heritage, and charts a worldwide journey through rich and varied territory, beginning where legend, myth and reality meet. These are the eternal realms, such as the Garden of Eden, Camelot and Avalon, which cannot now be seen, but which have for centuries motivated explorers, writers and artists.

Magnificent illustrations, photographs, painting and engravings, plus evocative descriptions, travelers' tales and artists' views make this a book to treasure.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Not an atlas, but a collection of fine photos of three dozen places "created by nature and man, where beauty and mystique combine to produce a magical atmosphere"--introduction. This seems a thin argument by which to justify a glorious picture book but it is as valid as many explanations of titles for coffee-table books. Look for this one on the sale tables around Christmas 1990. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
