This is Edward Lane's 1840 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 Stuart Orr, this classic collection is ideal for bedtime reading material and not to be missed by lovers of folklore. Edward William Lane (1801 - 1876) was a British Orientalist, translator and lexicographer. Monro Scott Orr (1874-1955) was a painter, etcher and illustrator. The stories include: "The Story of King Shahriar and Sheherazade", "The Story of the Fisherman and the Genie", "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. Pook Press celebrates the great 'Golden Age of Illustration' in children's literature - a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration. We publish rare and vintage classic illustrated books, in high-quality colour editions, so that the masterful artwork and story-telling can continue to delight both young and old.
