ARMSTRONG, Karen; Margaret ATWOOD; Jeanette Winterson; Philip PULLMAN. A Boxset of Myths. Edinburgh: Canongate Books Ltd., 2005.
8vo., 4 vols; three in original publisher's boards with illustrated jackets, the Pullman a folding leaflet; pp. 159, 199 and 151 [ii] respectively; housed in the original publisher's slip-case; essentially fine, the case perhaps ever-so-slightly rubbed.
First editions, with an introductory note by Philip Pullman. Comprising A Short History of Myth by Karen Armstrong; The Penelopiad, a retelling of the Penelope and Odysseus myth by Margaret Atwood; and Weight, the myth of Atlas and Heracles by the author of Oranges are not the only fruit.
A delightful gift set.
