HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved,
essential classics. '"For," said he, "there never was nor is there
one chaste woman upon the face of earth."' A collection of Persian,
Arabian and Indian tales dating from the 9th century, Sir Richard
Burton's most well-known translation of Arabian Nights brings
together ancient folklore and stories passed down from generation
to generation. Featuring tales about love, history, tragedy and
comedy as well as fables and fairy tales, this edition remains a
well-loved collection of exotic and evocative stories. Fantastical
and curious customs are bought to life by Burton's translation in
stories such as 'The Lovers of Bassorah', 'The Concubine of
Al-Maamun' and 'The Hunchback's Tale'.
