“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 charming printing of ‘Arabian Nights’ features the famous stories, such as Ali Baba and Aladdin, edited by Andrew Lang. Andrew Lang was a Scottish poet, novelist, literary critic and contributor to the field of anthropology, who is best known as a collector of folk and fairy tales. These are shortened versions of the tales of The Arabian Nights translated from Gal land, alongside numerous illustrations by H.J. Ford.
