Book Description Harry N. Abrams, New York, 1991. Hardcover. Condition: vg. First English language edition. Sm. folio. 495pp. Gold-stamped black cloth with original illustrated dust jacket. Illustrated endpapers. "Since the third millennium B.C., a vast body of astronomical knowledge, myths, and cults spread from Mesopotamia through the whole Mediterranean region, eventually reaching China and India. As they migrated the myths took on new forms - gods were renamed, personalities exchanged, symbolisms appropriated - and the interpretations of the stars metamorphosed as well. The Glorious Constellations tells this tale by concentrating on forty-eight ancient constellations and the Milky Way. Each is presented with a description of the lore surrounding it in various cultures - augmented when possible by corresponding legends from India, China, Australia, and the Americas. Astrological traditions are also included." Profusely illustrated with over 600 b/w, and 48 color reproductions. Introduction by Elémire Zolla. Translated from the Italian by Karin H. Ford. Minor staining on boards. Original price sticker, slight creasing and rubbing on dj. Tight copy with dj and binding in very good, interior in fine condition. Elaborate publication.
