First edition, preceding the UK issue by five months. “The authors take the position that many Biblical narratives derive from an old Hebrew tradition of mythology as fully developed as that of the ancient Greeks, and that much of this early mythical material, even if excluded from the Bible, subsequently found its way into the Midrash” (dust-jacket front flap).

Octavo. Original grey cloth, titles gilt to spine on blue ground and gilt to front board within scroll device stamped in blue, fore edge untrimmed, dark yellow endpapers with pictorial design in white. With the dust jacket. An excellent copy in the slightly toned dust jacket.

Bibliography: Higginson A105a
