"The Book of the Thousand Nights and a NIght - plain and literal translation of the Arabian Nights' Entertainments, now entitled" translated by Richard Burton

Benares: printed by the Kamashastra Society For Private Subscribers only - 1885-1888 (Vol I-IX published in 1885 plus the supplemental Nightst to the Book of a Thousand Nights and A Night published between 1886-1888) - 25cmx20, 4803p - condition: good, original binding with some wear to boards and spine, some waterstaining on covers and text-block, internally very good, complete. Some prospectuses laid in. Very rare.


This is a true rarity as this is the true first Burton edition of his masterpiece of the Book of the Thousand Nights and a Night, published later in a limited edition of 2000 copies, and many reprint editions in the late 19th century afterwards, especially rare in the original binding. Very few sets of the true first edition have survived.
