This text of Sheikh Nefzaoui (al-Nefzawi's) classic

and it celebrates the multifarious ways in which man and woman can come

together in joyful physical union.

Editorial Reviews

Libido
An explicit, but also consummately witty and graceful celebration of erotica...
Ben Trumble
The Park Street Press edition is the first illustrated reproduction of Burton's original translation. Buy it. Read it. Enjoy it. The Victorians did, even if they claimed they didn't. You won't be disappointed...

Sir Richard F. Burton (1821-1890) was one of the greatest traveler-explorers of history, whose life has recently been chronicled both in biography (Captain Sir Richard Burton) and film (Mountains of the Moon). Famous as the translator of The 1001 Arabian Nights, Burton also searched for the headwaters of the Nile, and was the discoverer of the central lakes of Africa. Orientalist, prolific author, and member of the Royal Geographic Society, he was one of the most remarkable and controversial men of his century.
