Graeco-Roman only - Norse myths not really there,
This review is from: Mythology (Back Bay books) (Paperback)
I have a copy of this book which was handed down from about thirty years ago, and it's never been off my bookshelf since. It's genuinely encyclopedic where the Greeks and Romans are concerned, and I can't recommend it highly enough. The only minus - as others have pointed out - is that the Norse myths take up a tiny section at the back of the book; one reviewer suggested it was about five per cent, but I think that's far too generous: about one per cent is a maximum.
That said, it's about the best one-volume compendium of the Greek and Roman myths out there.
