Arabian Nights

The beautiful Scheherazade saved her life by entertaining the brutal King Shahryar with these tales of magical transformations, genies and wishes, terror and passion. Here are the famous adventures of ‘Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves’ and ‘Aladdin and the Magic Lamp,’ as well as less familiar stories.

The tales have their origins in the cultures of India, Persia, and Arabia, and in this edition, based on Richard F. Burton’s unexpurgated translation, gives the reader all the sensuality and lushness of the original Arabic.
