Overview

One of the leading popularizers 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 Collectible Edition contains not only the full text of Bulfinch's definitive works, but also dozens of color 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:
  • The Age Of Fable describes the gods and goddesses of Greece and Rome, as well as the mythology of the Germanic tribes, England, and the Near East
  • The Age of Chivalry tells the story of King Arthur and his court, Lancelot and Guinevere, and the death of Arthur
  • Legends of Charlemagne gives a thrilling account of the reign of the first great French emperor, his wars, and his conquests.

    Not bad overall. Picked up mainly due to interest, but also to help complete my collection. The way they make new editions and then suddenly discontinue them for no reason made me grab this one fast. It had a nice looks to it overall, but does not exactly fit the overall over-the-top designs that the others are usually known for. I am already familiar with one of this works as well, so this should be an interesting read.

    Great addition to the leather bound series. Black and gold, gol

    Great addition to the leather bound series. Black and gold, gold on the page ends, gold ribbon marker. Sticker on the outer plastic proclaims 55 color illustrations. The three books that comprise this volume are listed on the back of the book in an elegant design. The book is very lovely. Good paper, a little slippery to the touch, not super thick but thick enough. The print is wide, wasting no space on margins, giving it a bit of a text book look. I've not yet read it, can't speak for typeos and format problems. Very pleased.

    One of my favorite 'B&N classics'.
    There's excellent color illustrations from 'B&N Classics' frequents like Arthur Rackham and Gustav Dore, and a wealth of other artists from the Renaissance through to the 20th century.

    Great gift

    Bought this for my fiance for X-mas. The book itself is beautiful. He loves all sorts of mythology, but had never heard of this collection. He hasn't begun to read it yet, but he is looking forward to it. I myself was surprised by the large amount of content, there are so many different stories in it!
