Overview

These are the tales that saved the life of Shahrazad, whose husband, the king, executed each of his wives after a single night of marriage.  Beginning an enchanting story each evening, Shahrazad always withheld the ending:  a thousand and one nights later, her life was spared forever.  Full of mischief, valor, ribaldry, and romance, The Arabian Nights has enthralled readers for centuries.

This volume contains the most famous and representative stories from Sir Richard F. Burton's multi volume translation, and, unlike many editions, is complete unexpurgated.  These tales, including 'Aladdin or the Wonderful Lamp', 'Sinbad the Sailor', and 'Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves', have entered into the popular imagination.

This edition of The Arabian Nights brings together the magical translation of Sir Richard Burton and the art of  William Harvey.  He was Thomas Bewick's most famous pupil and his evocative black and white woodcuts are complemented by the delightful engravings of the renowned brothers Thomas Dalziel and Edward Dalziel who were strongly influenced by Sir John Gilbert, and who regarded their illustrations for The Arabian Nights as their finest work.

Meet the Author

Sir Richard Burton was an orientalist explorer, diplomat and eccentric.  He was a remarkable linguist, and his mastery of Arabic enabled him to mix with the Arabs disguised as one of them.  In 1853 he made Haj, the trip to Mecca that is required of every Muslim, at a time when such an exploit by a European could have meant death.  He wrote many books of travel during his time as employee of the Foreign Office, but he is best known for his unexpurgated translation of The Arabian Nights.  He spent the last fourteen years of his life working on a translation of The Perfumed Garden, but Lady Burton burned it after his death.

    A wondrous day to day read, whether a story every night or full

    A wondrous day to day read, whether a story every night or full straight! The characters are fleshed out and interesting, with so many twists and turns! You do have to pay attention to this book, or you'll get lost fairly quick!
