    The stories of The Arabian Nights (and stories within stories) are famously told in the voice of Shahrazad, under the threat of death should the king lose interest in her tale.Collected over centuries from India, Persia, and Arabia, and ranging from adventure fantasies, vivacious erotica, and animal fables to pointed Sufi tales, these stories provided the daily entertainment of the medieval Islamic world at the heights of its glory. This translation is of the complete text of the Mahdi edition, the definitive Arabic edition of a 14th-century Cyrian manuscript, which is the oldest surviving and authentic, version of the tales. 518p.
