GREEK MYTHS: A WONDER BOOK FOR GIRLS & BOYS

EDIT BY NATHANIEL HAWTHORNE    Book Number: 86302    Product format: Hardback

Illustrated by the very collectable and popular artist Walter Crane, there are chapter headings in Art Deco-style capitals and coloured line art and 19 beautiful full page colour plates including the Bellerophon Slays the Chimaera and Pandora Desires to Open the Box. In a beautiful burnt orange leather binding, the Medusa design on the front has the tendrils of her Gorgon hair in an emerald foil with silver border, smart endpapers and 202 silver gilt edged pages and satin bookmark. Incudes The Gorgon's Head, The Golden Touch, The Paradise of Children, The Three Golden Apples, The Miraculous Pitcher, and The Chimaera. Nathaniel Hawthorne was long of the opinion that many of the classical myths were capable of being rendered into fantastical stories for children and here he offers up half a dozen of the best for readers young and old and collectors of fine illustrated children's literature. "That is Medusa. Do not look at her! The sight would turn you to stone!"
