The Arabian Nights Entertainments (1898) Selected and Edited by Andrew Lang; generously Illustrated By Rene Bull and H. J. Ford. Andrew Lang is best known as one of the most important collectors of folk and fairy tales.

The twelve fairy tale books he edited contain stories from around the world, collected from various sources, and translated mainly by his wife and other enthusiasts.

Includes: The Seven Voyages of Sindbad the Sailor; The Story of Ali Baba and The Forty Thieves; Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp and many many more...
