They are ancient stories, but they still enchant our imaginations today. Ali Baba and the Forty ThievesSinbad the SailorAladdin. These and the other Middle Eastern stories collected in Arabian Nights are delightful, fascinating, and fun for fans and first-time readers alike.

Full of mischief, valor, ribaldry, and romance, The Arabian Nights has enthralled readers for centuries. These are the tales that saved the life of Shahrazad, whose husband, the king, executed each of his wives after a single night of marriage. Beginning an enchanting story each evening, Shahrazad always withheld the ending: A thousand and one nights later, her life was spared forever. 

Burtons translation is acknowledged as the definitive rendering of the NIGHTS into English for it's exceptional accuracy.
