About this title: Synopsis: A 3 volume box set collection of classic ancient tales from Arabia, India, and Persia. The tales - often stories within stories - are told by the sultana Scheherazade, who relates them as entertainment for her jealous and murderous husband, hoping to keep him amused and herself alive. Translated by Malcolm and Ursula Lyons with an introduction by Robert IrwinThe blue and silver gilt box containing the three volume set has unfortunately sustained some damage to back corners but the three volumes themselves are in very good condition. Review: Penguin has produced this 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. Settle back, pour a glass of wine and sail away with Sinbad to the Island of Serendib.
