This is an auction for THE ARABIAN NIGHTS, edited by Kate Douglas Wiggin & Nora A Smith. reviews:

"Nowhere in the whole Realm of Literature will you find such a marvel, such a wonder, such a nonesuch of a book."... concludes the preface to Kate Douglas Wiggin's 1909 edition of The Arabian Nights. Her elegant translation of ten classic tales for children and adults includes such favorites as the adventures of Aladdin and his lamp, Ali Baba and the forty thieves, and Sinbad, the fearless voyager. Accompanied by marvelous Maxfield Parris color illustrations from the 1909 edition, the wondrous nucleus of narrative that began in what is now the Middle East and spread outward to encompass the globe is here reborn in an exclusive, beautiful edition that reaffirms the meaing of Classic."

"FIVE STARS!! An excellent book. The color plates of the Maxfield Parish illustrations are wonderful."

"FIVE STARS!!! This is a good introduction into the tales of the Arabian Nights. Most of the tales involve characters seeking gold and riches of some sort and being able to get them easily by the use of magic. There is also a lot of turnings and twistings of fate; characters go from fortune to misfortune or vice versa."
