"The Arabian Nights" is a 1910 English-language translation of "One Thousand and One Nights", a collection of South Asian and Middle Eastern folk tales compiled during the Islamic Golden Age. It was anthologised over hundreds of years by a variety of scholars, authors, and translators across Asia and North Africa, with the stories having roots in medieval Persian, Arabic, Mesopotamian, Jewish, Indian, and Egyptian folklore. Fantastically illustrated by Caspar Emerson and Leon D'emo, this classic collection is ideal for bedtime reading material and is not to be missed by lovers and collectors of folklore. Caspar Hjalmar Emerson, Jr. (1878 - 1948) was a Norwegian-born American artist and illustrator. The stories include: "Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp", "The Enchanted Horse", "The Story of the Merchant and the Genius", "The Little Hunchback", "Story of the Blind Baba-Abdalla", "The Story of Ali Cogia, Merchant of Bagdad", "The Story of the Vizir who was Punished", "The Story of the Husband and the Parrot", "The Story of King Shahriar and Sheherazade", and many more.
