The Book of the Thousand Nights and a Night , translated by Richard Francis Burton
The Book of the Thousand Nights and a Night (Arabic: كتاب ألف ليلة وليلة‎ - kitāb 'alf layla wa-layla; Persian: هزار و یک شب - Hezār-o yek šab) is a collection of stories collected over many centuries by various authors, translators and scholars.

This edition of Burton's translation, restored the material censored by his wife Isabel in her edition. This was one of several limited and numbered editions privately printed for members of the "Burton Club".
