1840 Arabian Nights 1001 Entertainments Classic Arab SINBAD Galland Illustrated

“A loss that can be repaired by money is not of such very great importance.”

– The Arabian Nights

During the Golden Age of Islam in South and West Asia, a collection of tales and stories was gathered and called “One Thousand and One Arabian Nights”. It was first translated into French by Antoine Galland in 1704-17 and helped establish a positive attitude toward Islam in the Western world. It is often known in English as the Arabian Nights.

This mid-19th-century three-volume edition is profusely illustrated with black and white, in-text illustrations throughout.
