Abstract: 'In attempting to describe, in three books, the history of the animals of mythology, I do not think it necessary to indicate particularly the primitive domain of the myth; for although the first book bears the title of Animals of the Earth, the second Animals of the Air, and the third, Animals of the Water, there is but one general domain in which all the animals of mythology are produced, and made to enact their respective parts. This domain is always the heavens...' -- Preface
