    Description

    [Richard Burton]. The Book of the Thousand Nights and a Night - In Sixteen Volumes. The Burton Club, [n.d., circa 1920].

    The Baroda Edition. Limited to 950 numbered sets. Sixteen octavo volumes, complete. "A Plain and Literal Translation of the Arabian Nights Entertainment Translated and Annotated by Richard Burton." Monochrome plates with tissue guards, illustrated after paintings by Albert Letchford.

    Original blue cloth. Dulled gilt lettering to spine. Top edges gilt. Black dust jackets with gilt lettering to spine. Very slight chipping to top and base of several jackets, some of which have been unobtrusively reinforced on the verso with cellophane tape. Tape has also been used to repair a tear to the tissue guard to the frontispiece of volume I, resulting in some discoloration to both frontispiece and title page. An attractive set. All volumes very good in crisp dust jackets. From the Frank Collection.
