KIRKUS REVIEW

Pierre Grimal, Professor at the Sorbonne, introduces and acts as editor to this volume which aims ""to bring together some of the principles from which one may hope to gain a fairly exact idea of what was, historically speaking, mythical thought in the majority of great human societies."" Twenty-three contributors proceed to aid and abet this aim; their text is accompanied by some 600 photographs, 40 in full color and all excellent. For browsing or reference.
