Almost three centuries have passed since the oldest manuscript of "The Thousand and One Nights" arrived in Europe. Since then it has occupied the minds of scholars world-wide, in particular the questions of origin, composition, language and literary form. This book explores the complex literary history of the "Nights", bringing to fruition the search for the archetype that constituted the core of the surviving editions, and treating the fascinating story of the growth of the huge collection of stories.
