The text (in German) reads as follows, as best as I can make it out; corrections and an English translation would be very welcome:

Die schönsten Sagen des Klassischen Altertums.

Nach seinen Dichtern und Erzählern von Gustav Schwab.

Neue durchgesehene Ausgabe.

Mit 6 Illustrationen nach Originalen von Guido Reni, Paul Veronese, I. Flaxmann, Genelli und Ingres.


J. M. Gebhardt’s Berlag.

(Leopold Gebhardt.)

In English one might say, “The most beautiful legends of classical antiquity after its poets and narrators, by Gustav Schwab.
New revised edition.
With 6 Illustrations after originals by Guido Reni, Paup Deronese, I. Flaxmann, Genelli and Ingres.
Leipzig. J. M. Gebhardt’s publishing house. (Leopold Gebhardt.)”
