“A loss that can be repaired by money is not of such very great importance.”

– The Arabian Nights

 

During the Golden Age of Islam in South and West Asia, a collection of tales and stories was gathered and called “One Thousand and One Arabian Nights”. It was first translated into French by Antoine Galland in 1704-17 and helped establish a positive attitude toward Islam in the Western world. It is often known in English as the Arabian Nights.

 

This scarce 1867 edition is profusely illustrated, translated by famous English lexicographer E.W. Lane. Lane himself writes:

“There is one work, however, which represents most admirable pictures of the manners and customs of the Arabs, and particularly of those of the Egyptians; it is ‘The Thousand and One Nights; or, Arabian Nights’ Entertainments:’ if the English reader had possessed a close translation of it with sufficient illustrative notes, I might almost have spared myself the labour of the present undertaking.”

 

It is filled with impressive woodcuts from the art of William Harvey, as well as some of the most famous stories – ‘Aladdin’, ‘Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves’, and ‘Sinbad the Sailor’.
