*** Illustrated Premium Edition ***Since the Greeks and Romans were not among those who received the divine story of creation, they were forced to devise a theory to explain their own existence and account for the origin of all things. The foundation of this theory lay in the marvelous phenomena of nature around them. The growth of the mighty tree from the tiny seed, the bursting bud and blossom, thechanging hues and the fragrance of flowers, the alternation of day and night, the flash of the rock-rending lightning, the rage of the tempest, the flow of the rivers; the towering mountains, the lovely valleys; dew, rain, the clouds, and the ever-shifting panorama on every hand; the majestic sweep of the blazing worlds through spaceThese finally became crystallized into a literature, or mythology, which has since been the inspiration alike of romancers and poets.Published in 1895, 1000 Mythological Characters Briefly Described is an alphabetical book containing various creatures, people and gods from mythology.
