Reviews
"A magnificent, unexpurgated edition of the greatest collection of folk tales in the world . . . The Arabian Nights is not a book to be read in a week. It is an ocean of stories to be dipped into over a lifetime. And this new Penguin edition is the one to have." --The Sunday Times (London)

"The translation . . . ought to become the standard one for the present century." --The Times Literary Supplement

"These magnificent volumes are the most ambitious and thorough translation into English of The Arabian Nights since the age of Queen Victoria and the British Empire." --The Guardian

"This new translation of the world's greatest collection of folk stories restores their colour and verve." --The Sunday Times (London)
