By Alexander S. Murray
New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, n.d. (ca. 1875). Reprinted from the second revised London edition, 368 pages, 5-1/2 x 8 inches. Brown cloth hardbound with gilt decor on cover and spine. Tissue-protected frontispiece with ''45 plates on tinted paper representing more than 90 mythological subjects'', quality paper.
The book is lightly soiled on the back cover and edges, but spine and hinges are tight. No marks, tears, odors, etc. Front endpaper and first free page have library labels--due-date sheet and check-out card pocket--but there are no other library marks. Nobody ever checked out this book. Overall very good condition. A beautiful collector copy to grace your shelves and, otherwise, a comprehensive manual of all the old gods.
