Price: $4.50


Scheherezade, Thousand and One Nights

  Magic Carpet to Exquisite "Delights


Steeped in the bizarre flavor, humor, and fan­tasy of the East, this lively and entertaining new collection contains some of the classic tales of far-off places and fantastic adventures which a seductive harem girl, Scheherezade, spun on a thousand and one Arabian nights.


This modern retelling of the ever-popular stories, in clear, direct English, the first new rendering in over half a century, is the trans­lation of an authority on Islamic culture. ". . . more easily readable and moves more quickly than previous versions. The tales at their most magical and dramatic . . ."

Along with the story of Aladdin and the Enchanted Lamp are tales of Judar and is Brothers, Aboukir and Abousir, and the Amorous Goldsmith.
