The illustrated age of fable

£14.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Since first published 150 years ago, Thomas Bulfinch's retellings of the legends of Greece and Rome provide a ready reference to mythology.
The book celebrates the themes which have influenced Western artists, writers and thinkers.
It uses quotations from poets, such as Shakespeare, Keats and Wordsworth, to show how the images of the classical world have enriched the world of literature.

The full, original text of stories is here published with 140 masterpieces inspired by these myths.
The works of artists, including Botticelli, Raphael, Poussin, Tiepolo and Burne-Jones, combine with these retellings.

The d/j does have a small tear to the bottom front otherwise the book is in very good order.
