  1. THE GOLDEN ASSE

    Regular Price: $40.00

    Sale Price $19.95

    Written in the second century A.D., this picaresque classic is the ancient world's only surviving complete novel. An inquisitive young man is transformed into an ass by a magic potion, and the narrative offers tales of love, intrigue, and witchcraft ― a story-within-a-story technique that inspired many later authors, including Boccaccio, Cervantes, and Rabelais. This lavish hardcover edition--bright red cloth with gold embossed titles--reproduces the John Lane/Bodley Head version, published in London in 1923, complete with the at-the-time racy plates: 16 full-page, eight in color, and numerous black-and-white images by noted illustrator Jean de Bosschère.

    Sale Price $19.95

    This handsome edition features beautifully crafted stories of Theseus and the Minotaur, Circe the Enchantress, Proserpine's abduction into the Underworld, and Jason's quest for the Golden Fleece.

She illustrated just three major works in her all-too-brief life of just 30 years: "Old French Fairy Tales", "The Arabian Nights", and this title in 1919--her second book. If you like Dulac, Rackham and Kay Nielsen, you cannot miss this. Learn More
