Heathen Mythology

Messrs. Carey & Hart have published "Heathen Mythology." by Punch. This to the classical reader is the most amusing of all the "Punch Books." It is embellished with ten engravings entirely original with the facetious author, nothing of the kind being found either in the sculpture or painting of antiquity. Praxiteles and Phidias were clever artists in their way; but it must be conceded in all candour that they never had any conception of the looks and attitudes attributed to the gods and goddesses in these designs of Punch.
