"The early history of Britain from 55 B.C. to A.D. 1016 may be divided into four periods corresponding to four groups of Indo-European peoples, each of which left its mark upon English culture, and each of which contributed to that composite language which is our own." And so begins Medieval Myths. Includes an Index.

36 GRAVES, ROBERT; PATAI, RAPHAEL. Hebrew Myths: The Book Of Genesis
Doubleday & Company, Garden City: 1964. First Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition. 
This exhaustive exploration of the Hebrew myths and the book of Genesis resulted from a remarkable collaboration between one scholar raised as a strict Protestant and one raised as a strict Jew. It goes beyond Christian biblical and Judaic myth and incorporates midrashes, folk tales, apocryphal texts, and other obscure sources to extend and complete the stories. An intriguing view of the suppressed and censored pre-biblical accounts is the result, along with a rich sense of a culture consisting of oral and literary traditions, where the spiritual is deeply rooted in landscape and history. Includes an Index.
