Traditionally attributed to Apollodorus of Athens, ‘The Library’ is a first or second century encyclopaedia of Greek mythology and heroic legends, written in a concise and unembellished style, closely following Greek literary sources. The extant text provides an important record of Greek accounts of the origin and early history of the world, preserving many otherwise lost mythological tales. Delphi’s Ancient Classics series provides eReaders with the wisdom of the Classical world, with both English translations and the original Greek texts.  This comprehensive eBook presents the complete extant ‘Library’, with dual Greek and English text, relevant illustrations, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.
