SYSTEM OF MYTHOLOGY.
BY C. 0. MÜLLER,
Author of " The History and Antiquities of the Doric Race,” &c., &c.
TRANSLATED FROM THE GERMAN.
BY JOHN LEITCH.
I am indebted to you for my first acquaintance with the writings of Müller; and what chiefly determined me to translate his Prolegomena, was the circumstance that you entertained so high an opinion of that work, as to have thought, at one time, of translating it yourself. However much it may be a matter of regret that you did not undertake a task for which you are peculiarly well qualified, it is, nevertheless, gratifying to me that I am enabled to testify my respect for your character, and my admiration of your profound, varied, and elegant scholarship, by inscribing to you this Translation of a work which stands so high in your estimation.
