A fine set.The plates include 70 by Letchford, 17, by Laluze, 10 by Batten 7 by Gavarni and 10 others by different artists. These illustrations form an interesting collection of the works of English and French artists, whose styles greatly vary."The Burton Club edition consisted of seventeen volumes instead of the original sixteen, the extra volume being formed by splitting the large third Supplemental volume into two separate volumes of equal size with the rest." (Penzer, p.126).The original Benares: Kamashastra Society edition was published in ten volumes in 1885 and was followed in 1886-1888 by the six volumes of 'Supplemental Nights'. This original sixteen volume 'Benares' edition was published without illustrations.The Arabian Nights' Entertainments is "a collection of ancient Persian-Indian-Arabian tales, originally in Arabic, arranged in its present form about 1450, probably in Cairo. The collection is also known as A Thousand and One Nights. Although the stories are discrete in plot, they are unified by Scheherazade, the supposed teller; she postpones her execution by telling her husband Schahriah, a story night after night, without revealing the climax until the following session?Sir Richard Burton's monumental version?was issued only to subscribers by the Kamashastra Society of Benares in 1885-86. Among the more recent editions is [one] by Powys Mathers" (Benét's Reader's Encyclopedia). The most popular stories include "Aladdin," "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves," and "Sinbad the Sailor."Penzer, An annotated bibliography of Sir Richard Francis Burton, pp. 126-130.
