Wonderfully illustrated book on the mythology of the Norse Gods and Giants. Signed by Edgar d'Aulaire. Early printing of the first edition.
"Far to the North, in ancient times, shining gods lived above the mountains and battled with the awful frost giants who caused the icy winters. Now, in the informal narrative and vibrant illustrations that have made them justly famous, the d'Aulaires bring to life the gods and giants, and the hilarious stories of Nordic mythology.
Once again one-eyed Odin storms to earth with his band of warrior maidens, the Valkyries; and mischievous Loki keeps things lively for everyone with his tricks. Enormous Thor dresses as a simpering bride to retrieve his magic hammer, and beautiful Freya wanders the world looking for her lost husband - when she isn't entertaining slain heroes in Valhalla.
Raging giants, horrible monsters, and all-too-human gods act out their drama in these pages, and the rough and tumble, wonderful world of ancient myth seems as fresh as tomorrow."
