This vintage book contains a fantastic collection of stories taken from Greek mythology. Derived partly from the classical originals and partly from excellent versions of them written in German, these stories were intended primarily to interest young readers in the wonders of Greek mythology. They thus make perfect stories to read to children at bedtime. The tales contained herein include: “Orpheus and Eurydice”, “The Sleep of Endymion”, “The Tale of the Beautiful Psyche”, “Cupid and the Graces”, “Midas”, “The Argonauts”, “Philemon and Baucis”, and “Arethusa”. Many antiquarian books such as this are increasingly hard to come by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on greek mythology.
