Hand-numbered 1473 out of 1500. Number 1473 matches with several of our other LEC books that are listed and soon to be listed. In Metamophoses, Ovid brings together a dazzling array of mythological tales, ingeniously linked by the idea of transformation-often as a result of love or lust-where men and women find themselves magically changed into new and sometimes extraordinary beings.

Beginning with the creation of the world and ending with the deification of Augustus, Ovid interweaves many of the best-known myths and legends of ancient Greece and Rome, including Daedalus and Icarus, Pyramus and Thisbe, Pygmalion, Perseus and Andromeda, and the fall of Troy. Erudite but light-hearted, dramatic and yet playful, Metamorphoses has influenced writers and artists throughout the centuries from Shakespeare and Titian to Picasso and Ted Hughes. This book is in excellent used condition. Please see the photographs for best description. The book is still spectacular after 63 years, but the slipcase is missing.

Again, please review all photos carefully before purchasing, and feel free to ask questions if the photos do not suffice. Also, be sure to check out our other listings at Settembrini's Selections.
