The book description mentions that it includes ilustrations from recognized painters, but the book does not include anyone, only the one in the cover. If you can choose the dover's edition you can give the 5 stars.

This book features a selection of Roman and Greek myths, in addition to several short summaries of stories such as the Iliad, the Alliad, and the Oddesy. In addition, it contains many passages from such poets as Homer, Shakespeare, and several others of a more modern origin. Written in fine, if rather flowery script, this book portrays its myths just as one would assume the ingenious writers and story tellers who created them would like them to be told. A vast accomplishment, this document has been printed and reprinted ever since it was first written over a hundred years ago. Every known god or goddess is allotted their tales, which include various versions, stating the details that differ from version to version. Colorful descriptions of each deity are accompanied by a complete list of their many different names. Both new and old versions of the book are still available. As an added bonus, it does not have a bias towards other religions, but approaches the subject in a slightly more scientific manner.
