Overview

Thomas Bulfinch (July 15, 1796 - May 27, 1867) might never be as well known as his famous father, Charles Bulfinch, who was the architect of the Massachusetts State House and also worked on the U.S. Capitol building in Washington D.C. However, Bulfinch was successful in his own right, working at a bank while also spending time writing.

Bulfinch reorganized Psalms to create a history of the Hebrews, but he is best known for Bulfinch’s Mythology, which is comprised of The Age of Fable, The Age of Chivalry, and Legends of Charlemagne. Relying on writers like Ovid and Virgil, Bulfinch’s motive was to make mythology more popular. In that, he succeeded, as his works are still popular more than 150 years after they debuted.

DO NOT BUY THIS VERSION!!!!! If I could give this ebook a zero star rating, I would. Here's why: This particular version has missing pages, and does not contain a table of contents; this file is incomplete. What this file contains is a giant wall of text, nothing distinguishing one chapter from the next, and no way to navigate through it on a NOOK. I have contacted B&N on multiple occasions to see if they can get the publisher to update the file to make it complete, but to no avail. Shame on you, Barnes and Noble for not having some form of Quality Control to prevent something like this from making it onto your site and available for purchase. If you are wanting to buy Bulfinch's Mythology, DO NOT BUY THIS VERSION! There are complete and good versions on the site, you just need to do what B&N apparently cannot and QC things for yourself. Make sure to "read sample" them to see if they have a Table of Contents or you will end up attached to another object by an inclined plane, wrapped helically around an axis like me.
