Description:

From Apollo to Zeus, from Amun to Vishnu, and from the Vedic and Brahmanic gods to the creation myths, this volume remains an essential handbook on the mythology of the ancient past. Less well known to American readers than Bulfinch's Mythology, Alexander Murray's text nevertheless stands out as possibly the finest, most authoritative single-volume narrative on Greek, Roman, Egyptian, Hindu, and Norse/Germanic myths. The author's incomparable scholarship and his animated, personable style make this an indispensable companion for students and other interested readers. 200 illustrations. 28 unnumbered plates.
