In this book “The Arabian Nights” are translated from the French version of Monsieur Galland, who dropped out the poetry and a great deal of what the Arabian authors thought funny, though it seems wearisome to us. In this book the stories are shortened here and there, and omissions are made of pieces only suitable for Arabs and old gentlemen. The translations are by the writers of the tales in the Fairy Books, and the pictures are by Mr. Ford.

Sinbad, Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, Alladin and his lamp, plust many more. It's hard to beat all these great stories in one collection. Read this one for sure!

I didn't know what I was getting into when I started reading this book. I had heard a few references to the Arabian Nights, mainly that it was a highly scandalous book. That's it. So, of course, I had to read it. Arabian Nights is a book of Arabian fairy tales. There's genii (singular = genius. that'll save you confusion later) in basically every story. But, when I started reading, I couldn't stop. Arabian fairy tales are nothing like those of the West [despite what the preface says]. They're awesome! I would definitely recommend this book.
