Excerpt from The Book of Wonder VoyagesThe story of The Argonauts had been told so well by Kingsley that I dared not commit the sacrilege of pro ducing a rival version I have to thank Messrs Mac millan for permitting me to utilise his Heroes Mr Alfred Nutt with his usual kindness has provided me with a version of Maelduin, in which he has had per mission from Dr Whitley Stokes to use his translation which appeared in the Revue Celtique Hasan I have retold in an abridged form, using as my originals the three translations from the Arabic, none of which were suficiently simple to suit the audience for whom I in tended his Adventures For my Icelandic I have had to resort to the friendly offices of the Rev J Sephton, who has been good enough to translate the Eric Saga for this volume, while I have combined with it an adapta tion of Thorkill s Voyage to the World Beyond the Ocean, from Saxo Grammaticus, utilising for that pur pose Mr Elton s version published by the folk lore Society To all these gentlemen I hereby record my grateful thanks.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books Find at www.forgottenbooks.comThis book is a reproduction of an important historical work Forgotten Books uses state of the art technology to digitally reconstruct the work, preserving the original format whilst repairing imperfections present in the aged copy In rare cases, an imperfection in the original, such as a blemish or missing page, may be replicated in our edition We do, however, repair the vast majority of imperfections successfully any imperfections that remain are intentionally left to preserve the state of such historical works.
