This volume of Indexes and an extensive English introduction completes the publication of the critical edition of The Thousand and One Nights, of which the first two volumes, the Arabic text and commentary, were published in 1984. For the first time, the oldest manuscript of this famous Arabic text is now completely accessible to scholars and interested readers. This third and final volume, which completes painstaking work of more than three decades, magnificently adds to the important and pioneering work by Muhsin Mahdi which has been lauded by so many.
