Mythology™: Greek Gods, Heroes & Monsters Book

A mythical exploration fit for the gods!

Item #:


In the early 19th century, an English nobleman embarked on a tour of the sites of ancient Greece. He brought as his guide a primer on Greek myths written by his friend Lady Hestia Evans, a devotee of Lord Byron who had recently taken the same voyage. In the true Romantic spirit, Lady Hestia's book was not only lavishly illustrated but also boasted many paper crafts, flaps, foldouts, novelties, and other surprises. The nobleman added his own witty comments and drawings along the way, but seems to have wished for something odd at the Delphic oracle: as the book nears its end, it slowly begins to turn to gold.

Now, for lovers of Greek myths and those just discovering their timeless power, this fascinating volume is faithfully reproduced with all of its Romantic ambience, clever wit and novelty features intact. Presenting the Midas touch — a mythical exploration fit for the gods.
