Historical Atlas of World Mythology:
(an overview)
by Joseph Campbell

.

The Historical Atlas was meant to be the summation of Campbell's life's work.  It was unfortunately not finished at the time of his death.

The book as it stands has two volumes (four were intended): Volume 1: The Way of the Animal Powers and Volume 2: The Way of the Seeded Earth.  They are published in a total of five parts, as follows:

Volume 1: The Way of the Animal Powers

Part 1 : Mythologies of the Primitive Hunters and Gatherers

Part 2: Mythologies of the Great Hunt

Volume 2: The Way of the Seeded Earth

Part 1: The Sacrifice

Part 2 : Mythologies of the Primitive Planters: The Northern Americas

Part 3: Mythologies of the Primitive Planters: The Middle and Southern Americas

I currently only have information on the first volume.  I hope to add the rest after my trip home this summer.
