The Book of A Thousand Nights and A NightBook - 2007
Full of mischief, valour, ribaldry, and romance, The Arabian Nights has enthralled readers for centuries. These are the tales that saved the life of Shahrazade, whose husband, the king, executed each of his wives after a single night of marriage. Beginning an enchanting story each evening, Shahrazade always withheld the ending: a thousand and one nights later, her life was spared forever. This volume contains the most famous and representative stories from Sir Richard F. Burton's multivolume translation. These tales include Aladdin, Sinbad the Sailor, and Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves.
