Overview

The Greek Heroes - Stories Translated from Niebuhr - Illustrated by Arthur Rackham by Niebuhr, Arthur Rackham

‘The Greek Heroes – Stories Translated From Niebuhr’ presents a collection of thrilling stories about five Greek Heroes; ‘The Argonauts, ‘The Prowess of Hercules’, ‘The Heraclidae’, ‘The Story of Perseus’, and ‘The Story of Theseus’. Together, these stories provide a comprehensive picture of Greek myth and legend. Barthold Georg Niebuhr (1776 – 1831), was a Danish-German statesman, banker, and historian who became Germany’s leading historian of Classical Rome and Greece. His classic story telling brings this long lost world and ancient civilisation to life – for both young and old to enjoy. This edition of ‘The Greek Heroes’ contains a series of dazzling colour and black-and-white illustrations – by a master of the craft; Arthur Rackham (1867-1939). One of the most celebrated painters of the British Golden Age of Illustration (which encompassed the years from 1850 until the start of the First World War), Rackham’s artistry is quite simply, unparalleled. Throughout his career, he developed a unique style, combining haunting humour with dream-like romance. Presented alongside the text, his illustrations further refine and elucidate Niebuhr’s enthralling narratives. Pook Press celebrates the great ‘Golden Age of Illustration‘ in children’s literature – a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration. We publish rare and vintage Golden Age illustrated books, in high-quality colour editions, so that the masterful artwork and story-telling can continue to delight both young and old.
