Myths of the New World by Daniel Brinton

Publication: 1868 Leypoldt & Holt; New York First Edition

This work is described as "a study of an obscure portion of the intellectual history of our species"..an examination of man's earliest ideas of the soul, God, and of his own origin and destiny. Why do we find certain myths, such as of a creation, a flood, an afterworld; certain symbols, as the bird, the serpent, the cross, certain numbers, as the three, the four, the seven - intimately associated with these ideas by every race?
