Last installment and last gallery for the 1958 Fratelli Fabbri edition of a selection of tales from the Arabian Nights.
The last story in the book is The Tale of Abu Kir the Dyer and Abu Sir the Barber, and once again it is illustrated by Benvenuti. This is the widest selection of illustrations: the two previous tales got ten images each, but the final tale gets nineteen. And we won’t complain for that!
Once again, if you’d like to read the original, you can check out the version available at Sacred Texts.
For a complete version of the Arabian Nights, Project Gutenberg offers both the Andrew Lang translation, and the “complete” 1890 “Aldine edition”. But the Gutenberg guys really have a wide selection of versions of the book.
Print editions are many and deserve a separate post (maybe, one day).
And now, here’s the gallery.
