Read full description of the books:
This Excalibur publishers full cloth edition scared the hades out of its previous owner apparently and I quote written in a crimson cursive, "Satan, I rebuke you in the name of Jesus and bid you here on earth as you are in heaven. God's truth is there now and forever and shall NOT be mocked."
So, barring all the satan rebuker's highlighting and annecdotal scribbling, I'm enthralled to have this mind-bendingly beautiful book edited by Pierre Grimal, Professor at the Sorbonne!
WTF, is myth... American Indian, King Arthur, Neolithic stone earth mother goddesses or the near East dragons? If we could but grasp a fraction of what went down in Sumer, Babylon, Egypt and the rest of Mesopotamia not excluding the Assyrians, Hittites, or Phoenicians muchless the Indians, other Persians and Greeks, we would be struck dead from shear information overload but alas, leave it to the French to put it all together in a treasury that very well may keep me busy reading, thinking and debating for the rest of my life.

Then he was active as a professor of Roman civilization at the faculties of Caen and Bordeaux, and finally at the Sorbonne for thirty years.
