An abridged and illustrated edition of Budge's classic translation, now considered a bit out of date. The plates are very nicely done, if some are a bit small, and most of the footnotes from the original edition have been cut for clarity. Nicely done, but could've used some more or the original material and made some of the detail pictures a little larger and placed closer to the translated text.

A book written in the 1920s and gives a good brief description of some keys myths as they had been discovered and translated at the time. There are many more recent books giving a better view of these myths based on the research since then. That said, if you want a quick read to get a feel for how these myths were written it’s worth a read.
