Explains the meanings for more than two thousand symbols from mythology, fairy tales, religion, literature, history, and archaeology

Book News
Translated from the original German, this encyclopedic reference explores the meanings of some 2,000 symbols ( aloe to zodiac ), drawing on the past and present worlds of mythology, fairy tales, religion, literature, history, and archaeology. Some 600 b&w illustrations accompany the entries. The illustrations are then gathered into a pictorial index, allowing readers to look up a symbol and find its meaning in the text. Primarily for a lay audience, but with much to interest scholars. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
