The Book of the Thousand Nights and One Night, vol 1

by Anonymous

Though the desert sands shift constantly with the whipping wind of the North African Sahara, there are some stories of such prestige and power that they spread beyond the cultures that created them and become a part of the heritage of the entire world. This is one such story.

This is the story of the Arabian Nights, translated as faithfully as the author knew how, into English. Such a debt is owed to this man that I find it only appropriate to enlighten this work with the Author's name: Richard F. Burton.

I base this finding on the verbatim nature of this transcription's resemblance to an attributed work in my possession, purchased from the Easton Press.

For those who are viewing my words, I recommend this book, and all of its subsequent volumes, as being the most complete, unabridged translation available. For the rest, the very fame and antiquity of the stories which comprise the Thousand Nights and A Night speak more forcefully than I could about the quality of this masterpiece.

Thank you.
