Description:

Beautiful full tan moroccan leather with gilt design on front, rear and spine. First Edition, Second Issue. Marbled boards. The spine, corners and edges have light to moderate rubbing; faint scuff marks to leather boards. Gilt bat illustrations on spine, as well as titles, are bright and visible. Pages are clean and unmarked with only a few, occasional spots of oxidation. Binding is tight and square. Top edge gilt is rubbed. The half title page has a 2" tear near the inside seam that has been repaired. Interestingly, as this appears to be an early leather rebinding of the original, the last 3 pages contain the First Edition, second issue red front cover, spine and rear cover bound into this book, making this particular volume quite unique. Pictures available upon request. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description COSIMO CLASSICS, United States, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Ernest Griset (illustrator). 213 x 140 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Soldier, explorer, and adventurer, British author CAPTAIN SIR RICHARD FRANCIS BURTON (1821-1890) is perhaps best remembered for his notoriously unexpurgated translations of The Arabian Nights and the Kama Sutra, which scandalized-and titillated-Victorian readers. Lesser known, however, is his intriguing collection of classic Hindu tales of adventure, magic, and romance, first published in 1870. Enlivened by Burton s own imagination-he was the first to translate them from Sanskrit-these stories purport to demonstrate the exceeding folly of many wise fools, the use and misuse of magic pills, that a man s wife belongs not to his body but to his head, the marvellous delicacy of three queens, and more. This obscure, delightful work is a fascinating look at both Indian mythology and Victorian cultural anthropology. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9781616401917
