Description

The title of this set refers to Hercules, a mythological figure who must complete a series of difficult tasks. One of these was procuring the golden apples of the Hesperides, the nymphs who guarded this precious fruit. Hesperides also refers to books on citrus fruit, as it was once thought that the golden apples were actually Spanish oranges.
