Tanglewood Tales
Hawthorne, Nathaniel and Dulac, Edmund (illustrator)

Folio Society, 2002, Boxed, very good condition

One of 19th-century America's greatest authors recounts timeless tales from Greek mythology in this delightful partner to A Wonder-Book for Girls and Boys. Nathaniel Hawthorne's evocative interpretations of traditional stories about heroes, sorceresses, kings, and other legendary characters provide young readers and listeners with a spellbinding introduction to classic myths. Accompanied by beautiful colour plates by illustrator Dulac. The adventures begin with The Minotaur, the tale of an Athenian prince's conquest of a monstrous half-man, half-bull. Other stories include The Pygmies, concerning a friendly giant and his small-minded neighbours; The Dragon's Teeth, recounting the birth of a team of warriors and the founding of a city; Circe's Palace, in which an enchantress matches wits with the trickster Ulysses; The Pomegranate Seeds, a tale of the underworld; and The Golden Fleece, the story of an aspiring king and his quest for the shining symbol that will win a throne...
