9780140449389: The Arabian Nights: Tales of 1,001 Nights: Volume 1 (Penguin Classics)

Every night for three years the vengeful King Shahriyar sleeps with a different virgin, executing her the next morning. To end this brutal pattern and to save her own life, the vizier's daughter, Shahrazad, begins to tell the king stories of adventure, love, riches and wonder - tales of mystical lands peopled with princes and hunchbacks, the Angel of Death and magical spirits, tales of the voyages of Sindbad, of Ali Baba outwitting a band of forty thieves and of jinnis trapped in rings and in lamps. The sequence of stories will last 1,001 nights.

Review:

Penguin has produced this magnificent, unexpurgated edition of the greatest collection of folk tales in the world...The Arabian Nights is not a book to be read in a week. It is an ocean of stories to be dipped into over a lifetime. And this new Penguin edition is the one to have. Settle back, pour a glass of wine and sail away with Sinbad to the Island of Serendib (Christopher Hart The Sunday Times)

The tales satisfy imaginations famished for wonder. But even more importantly, they stand like fabulous cities against the encroachments of the dark ( Standpoint)

These magnificent volumes are the most ambitious and thorough translation into English of the Arabian Nights since the age of Queen Victoria and the British Empire. ( Guardian)

This is the most comprehensive collection of the stories to date; freshly gathered and translated from Arabic and French sources, this makes a glorious collectors' edition. ( Easy Living)

...this new translation of the world's greatest collection of folk stories restores their colour and verve ( The Sunday Times)

Book Description:

In a wonderful 3-volume hardback slipcase
