Publishers vellum over beveled edged boards. Spine very slightly dust soiled, otherwise a near fine copy. Housed in the publisher's slipcase.Cupid and Psyche is a story from the Latin novel Metamorphoses, also known as The Golden Ass, written in the 2nd century AD by Apuleius. It concerns the overcoming of obstacles to the love between Psyche ( "Soul" or "Breath of Life") and Cupid ("Desire") or Amor ("Love"), and their ultimate union in marriage. Although the only extended narrative from antiquity is that of Apuleius, Eros and Psyche appear in Greek art as early as the 4th century BC. The story's Neoplatonic elements and allusions to mystery religions accommodate multiple interpretations, and it has been analyzed as an allegory and in light of folktale, fairy tale, and myth.
