Apollodorus: The Library (Tr. Sir James Frazer), v1, 15 December 2009.

(Pseudo-) Apollodorus
The Library [Bibliotheca]
Translated and annotated by Sir James Frazer (1854–1941)
(1921)

From Wikipedia:
“The Bibliotheca (in English: Library), in three books, provides a grand summary of traditional Greek mythology and heroic legends …
A certain "Apollodorus" is indicated as author on some surviving manuscripts … Since for chronological reasons Apollodorus of Athens could not have written the book, the Scriptor Bibliothecae ("writer of the Bibliotheca") is conventionally called the "Pseudo-Apollodorus" by those wishing to be scrupulously correct. Traditional references simply instance "the Library and Epitome".
Unfortunately, the Bibliotheca, undivided in the manuscripts but conventionally divided in three books, has not come down to us complete. Part of the third book, which breaks off abruptly in the story of Theseus, has been lost. The Patriarch Photius had the full work before him, as he mentions in his "account of books read" that it contained stories of the heroes of the Trojan War and the nostoi, missing in surviving manuscripts. On the other hand, we have an epitome that was made by James George Frazer, who conflated two manuscript summaries of the text, also including the lost part, leaving us a good summary of its contents.”

I have found the text in several places, reformatted it, added a cover, and linked 1061 notes.
This was converted at the request of a member.
