Here are the world's most-loved stories, in a dynamic visual tour de force for today's readers. Each timeless myth is superbly presented in story form and enhanced with original art work by world-renowned artist Giovanni Caselli. Though Bulfinch's has been heralded for more than a century, it has never been published in so beautiful and accessible a format. Evocative four-color illustrations, many full-page, bring to life key events and characters of these universal tales and sagas -- from the Greek and Roman pantheon of gods to the heroes of the Crusades, from the exploits of Robin Hood to the feats of Richard the Lionheart. As enjoyable now as when Bulfinch first assembled them, these selections come from a variety of works -- Ovid's classic Metamorphoses, Egyptian myths, Eastern mythology, and Hindu, Norse, and Celtic sources. Together they form a remarkable tapestry of human endeavor: dreams, illusions, adventures, loves lost and loves found. In this handsome series, they speak to us afresh, across the ages, vivified through Caselli's inspired art. Original footnotes, indexes, and prefaces make this series not only entertaining, but completely authoritative as well.

Please remove the current "Publisher's Comments" section that refers to this book as "electronic paperback format." It is no such thing! This is a 6"X9" paperback edition, with nothing electronic about it. The current "from the publisher" comment must go with some other edition of this title. But on this page, the comment is very misleading. Please revise!
