American author and banker Thomas Bulfinch is best known for his three separate works on mythology, "The Age of Fable, or Stories of Gods and Heroes", "The Age of Chivalry, or Legends of King Arthur", and "Legends of Charlemagne, or Romance of the Middle Ages" collectively entitled "Bulfinch's Mythology," which was first gathered together in one volume and published after his death in 1867. Carl J. Richard, Professor of History at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, has praised "Bulfinch's Mythology" as "one of the most popular books ever published in the United States and the standard work on classical mythology for nearly a century." Consisting of prose retellings from three eras, "Bulfinch's Mythology" relates the myths and legends of ancient Rome and Greece, the English tales of King Arthur, and the romances of the Middle Ages. It can be argued that no more accessible and comprehensive collection of the myths and legends of the western world exists than this work. This edition reproduces "Bulfinch's Mythology" in its entirety.
