THE ARABIAN NIGHTS' ENTERTAINMENTS: Consisting of One Thousand and One Stories.

First edition thus. Three volumes. Publisher's original paper covered boards with titles in black to the upper board and spine, and a list of publisher's works to the lower board. Page edges untrimmed. Each volume illustrated with an engraved frontispiece and title page vignette. A very good set, the bindings square and firm with occasional light marking, some superficial splits to the joints (possibly with some historic repairs) and a little chipping to the spines (more so to volume one). The contents with some spotting to the engraved frontispieces/title pages and the occasional minor mark to page margins are otherwise excellent throughout and remain free from any previous owners' inscriptions or stamps. A most appealing set.

An attractive portable edition, translated into English from the French of Antoine Galland. Scarce in the original boards.
