Product Description

This Halcyon Classics ebook of THE NIGHT OF A THOUSAND NIGHTS AND A NIGHT (commonly referred to as THE ARABIAN NIGHTS) is the complete, unabridged translation by Sir Richard F. Burton. Burton was a 19th century Renaissance man, noted for his achievements as an explorer, translator, writer, soldier, orientalist, ethnologist, linguist, poet, hypnotist, fencer and diplomat.

Burton was a world traveler who visited Mecca on Hajj in disguise in the 1850s (as an infidel he would have been killed had he been discovered) and is credited as the first European to see Lake Tanganyika in Africa. According to one count, he spoke 29 European, Asian, and African languages.

THE ARABIAN NIGHTS is a collection of Middle Eastern and South Asian stories and folk tales compiled in Arabic during the Islamic Golden Age. Some of the best-known stories of The Nights include "Aladdin's Wonderful Lamp", "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves" and "The Seven Voyages of Sinbad the Sailor."

This ebook is DRM free and includes an active table of contents for easy navigation.

This unexpurgated edition contains the complete text, with minor errors and omissions corrected.
