This gorgeous collectors' edition collects several of the timeless stories from The Arabian Nights, faithfully retold by English author Laurence Housman and magnificently enhanced with 23 color plates by illustrator Edmund Dulac, one of the most talented artists of the Golden Age of Illustration. Dulac's romantic and exotic images provide the perfect accompaniment to these legendary tales, which include "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves," "Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp," "The Story of the Three Calendars," and "The Sleeper Awakened." "A wonderful work of art, not just a series of stories." — Carpe Libris
French-born artist Edmund Dulac (1882–1953) achieved prominence during the Golden Age of Illustration. His work encompasses a wide variety of themes and styles, although he preferred to work in watercolors and remains best known for his imaginative illustrations for fairy tales and other children's books. Illustrator and artist Laurence Housman (1865–1959), brother of A. E. Housman, ranged in his writings from mystic poetry to political satire. A committed socialist and pacifist, he was an active supporter of women's suffrage.
