Cover of: The Arabian nights entertainments | With the addition of the notes upon the text prepared by those scholars who had previously translated the text into English from the Arabic, notably: Henry Torrens & Edward Lane & John Payne; and it is embellished with miniature paintings made by Arthur Szyk for the Heritage Press, New York.

The Arabian nights entertainments

containing sixty-five stories told by Shahrazade the Sultaness to divert Shahryar the Sultan from the execution of a vow he had made to avenge the disloyalty of his first Sultaness; and containing a better account of the customs, manners, and religion of the Eastern nations than is to be met with in any edition hitherto published; because the text is one which Sir Richard Burton himself desired to own: the definitive and all-inclusive Burton translation.
