This is not a review of the classic Golden Bough This is a review of several hardback and soft back editions available to the collector which are complimentary to each other s content and pagination The purchaser may wish to take care in selecting which edition of the Golden Bough they consider for purchase Several hardbound editions existThe most common edition is the 2 volume abridged 4th editionthis is the edition supervised by Graves widow it is woefully incomplete It seems Mrs Graves was bothered by the Judeo Christian references as myth and reedited the 13 volume set to the boneBut still it is to the 3rd Edition that most collectors will want to turn The 3rd edition has twelve volumes and a 1 volume afterward which when assembled look rather like a set of encyclopedias There have been twelve reliable and inter changable printings from 1911 to 1990 which may allow the collector the opportunity to assemble a complete set of mis matching volumes as I have done spending less than 240 to assemble the entire series or averaging less than 2000 a volume The original publishers to look for are MacMillan Co and St Martin s Press One cannot vouch for the print accuracy of the plethora of On Demand editions I avoid them after a couple bad experiences with other titles too many transcription errorsThe numbering on these volumes is sometimes confusing The on line seller s lists at ALibris and ABE books always get them wrong so you may want to do a general search for Frazer Golden Bough Part and compare the listing to the contents below as printed on the dust jacket back of the 1990 editionThe 13 books are divided into 9 partsPart I Vols 1 2 The Magic Art and the Evolution of KingsPart II Taboo and The Perils of the SoulPart III The Dying GodPart IV Adonis Attis Osiris Vols 1 2Part V Spirits of the Corn and of the Wild Vols 12Part VI The ScapegoatPart VII Balder the Beautiful The Fire Festivals of Europe andThe Doctrine of the External SoulPart VIII Bibliography and General IndexPart IX Aftermath A Supplement to The Golden BoughWith a little preserverance you can assemble a set within a few months These books ought to be reuired reading to any student of religion history sociology and occult sciences

I read an abridged version of this some years ago that I picked up in a bookshop for a pound the output of a cheap publisher It was a slow and awkward read possibly because of the abridgement but the original was long and appeared in numerous editions each of which tended to get elaborate during Frazer s lifetimeThe opening echoes Gibbon s Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire the British scholar in Italy looks over the landscape and allows a vision of the past the product of their classical learning to sweep over them In Frazer s case though this was not a vision of the City of Rome but of the myth of the King of the Grove at Nemi The practise at Nemi was that there was a priest of the Goddess Diana who became priest by killing the current occupant of the office in single combat and who would then be the priest until they in turn were killed by a younger stronger applicant for the role The priest was generally maybe eventually always an escaped slave at least by the time that that the Classical writers were mentioning the practise a few years however brief as Priest of Diana were better than a long life of slaveryFrazer felt that the central idea of the cycle of eternal renewal was the foundational idea of religious and magical thinking manifesting itself from the most savage culture to Christianity The Christian connection was soft pedalled since one couldn t print that kind of thing in Victorian Britain but by implication Christ s death and resurrection was simply in his view just one repetition of the death and rebirth of the natural world the symbolic or actual death of a ritual figure magically reuired to ensure the rebirth of seed crops every yearThis Frazer set out to demonstrate by stock piling examples of this kind of myth from rural European corn kings and nineteenth century harvest songs to the cult celebration of the death of Adonis as well as everything in between In this way it still functions as a convenient treasure trove of myths stories and beliefs irrespective of the validity of his thesis Having said that the choice and arrangement of his material is determined by his goalsWhat I found most interesting was the snippets from the
