Thomas Bulfinch helped popularize mythology with his three-volume collection of tales for an English-speaking audience. This edition includes the first volume, Stories of Gods and Heroes, which was originally published in 1855 and presents the stories of Greek and Roman mythology. Considered to be one of the most popular and entertaining books of mythology, Bulfinch's Mythology is as relevant today as when it was originally published.
Thomas Bulfinch (1796–1867) was an American writer and banker. He is best known for Bulfinch's Mythology, a three-volume book: The Age of Fable,The Age of Chivalry, and Legends of Charlemagne.
