Retellings of Greel myths for children. Rather bowdlerized by modern standards. ( )
  antiquary | Jul 23, 2010 |
This was the book that started my love of mythology. I read these tales over and over at various ages.

This book is very old and has no date, ISBN, or LC card number. I'd love to know more information about this specific edition, but with no luck I cannot find any info. It was published by J.H. Sears & Company Inc. in New York..
