Bulfinch originally published his work as three volumes: The Age of Fable, or Stories of Gods and Heroes, published in 1855; The Age of Chivalry, or Legends of King Arthur, published in 1858; and Legends of Charlemagne, or Romance of the Middle Ages, published in 1863. Bulfinch’s original three volumes were posthumously combined into a single volume by Edward Everett Hale in 1881, who gave them the title Bulfinch’s Mythology.
