Historical Atlas Of World Mythology

By Campbell, Joseph




The Historical Atlas of World Mythology is a multi-volume series of books by Joseph Campbell that traces developments in humankind's mythological symbols and stories from pre-history forward. Campbell is perhaps best known as a comparativist who focused on universal themes and motifs in human culture. He first conceived of The Historical Atlas in the late 1970s as an extension of his works, The Mythic Image and The Masks of God.

Historical Atlas of World Mythology (5 Volume Set)

Joseph Campbell

EB: Harpercollins. Very Good. 1988. Hardcover. Hardcover. 4to. Harper & Row. 1988. Maps. Illustrated with Color / Black and White Plates. First Edition/First Printing. DJ has light shelf-wear present. Bound in cloth boards. Boards have light shelf-wear present to the extremities. No ownership marks present. Text is clean and free of marks. Binding tight and solid. Second book (vol I, part 2) has a binding error near the end of the text. The intent was to trace the development of myth throughout history and throughout the world. The first volume (The Way of the Animal Powers) covers the most ancient themes of the Paleolithic Great Hunt and its survival into modern (mostly native) cultures which still live by their agreement with the animals they hunt. Volume 2 (The Way of the Seeded Earth) was to deal with planting cultures and the myths of agriculture an the plant world. Of the three main centers of agricultural development (the New World, the Far East, and the Middle and Near East) , Campbell completed work only on the first and most recent. Volume 3 was to cover the myth systems based on astronomical and astrological insight. Volume 4 would have dealt with systems recognizing the microcosm of the human soul as a reflection of the macrocosm of the Universe. A summary of his thoughts on these topics can be found in his classic "Masks of God" series. EB; 8vo 8" - 9" tall .
