Reseña del editor
Every night for three years the vengeful King Shahriyar sleeps with a different virgin, executing her next morning. To end this brutal pattern and to save her own life, the vizier's daughter, Shahrazad, begins to tell the king tales of adventure, love, riches and wonder - tales of mystical lands peopled with princes and hunchbacks, the Angel of Death and magical spirits, tales of the voyages of Sindbad, of Ali Baba's outwitting a band of forty thieves and of jinnis trapped in rings and in lamps.
One of the best known and most influential works of literature ever written, this is the first complete translation into English of The Arabian Nights from the Arabic since the 1880s. It also includes new translations from 18th century French of the so-called 'orphan stories', for which no original Arabic text remains.
in a wonderful three-volume, luxury, limited edition boxset.

however, these do NOT retail for $1000 minimum, they were originally released at 125 pounds in England.
the price is preposterous. I would buy this at a more reasonable price (since my parents are essentially the ones buying it) although i do agree that this is a classic literature worth an investment.
Please don't let this review turn you off a fabulously entertaining and important piece of literature. I write this only as a parent who would like to add a note of caution before you give this set to your eight-year old thinking it's an appropriate read.
