This kid's quantity is from 1908; nice for adults to boot who are looking to be told approximately mythology.

Summary from the Prefatory observe:

My objective in getting ready this e-book on Mythology for
children has been to offer them sturdy wisdom on
the topic, so far as you might want to opt for im-
mature minds, dependent upon the newest investiga-
tions of students, and to choose the myths utilized in
illustration of the plan, in an effort to giving them
interesting tales to learn, in order to, nearly uncon-
sciously to themselves, lay a company origin for the
fascinating research of Comparative Mythology, may still
they desire to move extra deeply into it sooner or later.

There is way speak these days as to the authen-
ticity of the documents of savage myths. a lot of this
talk turns out to me futile, for a fantasy isn't a set
entity. each one successive narrator is sort of guaranteed to
vary and enhance just a little the cloth that comes
to him, in line with his personal artistic fancy. If,
therefore, a savage delusion recorded through a white guy
retains the executive features of the savage fable,
in spite of a few fanciful turns given it by means of him, to the
degree, say, tale of Ovid's keeps these of
a Greek fable, it's to all intents and reasons a savage
myth, and the elaborations should be omitted, as
Ovid's are after we are contemplating Greek Mythology.
I have, for that reason, integrated during this quantity these models
of the myths that appeared so much readable and tasty,
provided the primitive perspective of brain and customs have been
fully emphasised.

I. — what's a fantasy?
II. — Animals in Primitive Myths
III. — Animals in tradition Myths
IV. — Tree and Plant Myths
V. — Myths of the sunlight, Moon, and Stars
VI. — Myths of the Sky and Air
VII. — Mother-Myths and Child-Myths
