About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for VIKRAM AND THE VAMPIRE or Tales of Hindu Devilry by Burton Richard F.

Description:

First edition, issue in the green cloth, this copy with the rare Appleton title-slug printed in London and using the first edition UK sheets. With illustrations by Ernest Griset. 8vo, original green cloth gilt lettered and pictorially decorated in black on spine and upper cover. xxiv, 319. A very bright and attractive copy, unusually so. Expert and essentially unnoticeable strengthening to the head and tail of the spine. Very tight, clean and bright internally. These stories were adapted by Burton from stories included in the BAITAL PACHISI, a Hindu version of the traditional vampire tales. Penzer says these traditional tales were written in Sanskrit some time after 1070 A.D., though they were carried by oral tradition much earlier. He also states that, although copies of the second and third issue of this book do turn up, "they are seldom in good condition" (Penzer, p. 82). Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description COSIMO CLASSICS, United States, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Ernest Griset (illustrator). Language: English. Brand new Book. 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. Seller Inventory # AAV9781616401917
