Pierre Grimal , Stephen Kershaw , A. R. Maxwell-Hyslop, "A Concise Dictionary of Classical Mythology"
Blackwell Pub | ISBN:0631166963 | 456 pages | PDF | 8,8 Mb
This volume, following closely on the heels of its progenitor, Grimal's Dictionary of Classical Mythology ( LJ 2/1/86), remains a great reference tool. Entries are shortened by concentrating on the principal version of the myth and omitting minor variants. The publisher's note states that the price of the Dictionary "tended to put it beyond the reach of the lay-reader," and indeed the earlier Dictionary , currently selling at $54.95, is more expensive. This volume will suffice for most libraries.
