Overview

This is Andrew Lang's 1898 English-language translation of "One Thousand and One Nights," a collection of South Asian and Middle Eastern folk tales compiled during the Islamic Golden Age. It was anthologised over hundreds of years by a variety of scholars, authors, and translators across Asia and North Africa, with the stories having roots in medieval Persian, Arabic, Mesopotamian, Jewish, Indian, and Egyptian folklore. Beautifully illustrated by H. J. Ford, this classic collection is ideal for bedtime reading material and not to be missed by lovers of folklore. Andrew Lang (1844 - 1912) was a Scottish novelist, poet, literary critic, and anthropologist, most famous as a significant collector of folk stories and fairy tales. Other notable works by this author include: "The Green Fairy Book" (1892), "The Yellow Fairy Book" (1894), and "The Pink Fairy Book" (1897). The stories include: "The Story of the Merchant and the Genius," "Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp," "The Enchanted Horse," "The Little Hunchback," "Story of the Blind Baba-Abdalla," "The Story of Ali Cogia, Merchant of Bagdad," "The Story of the Vizir who was Punished," "The Story of the Husband and the Parrot," and many more.
