I have an old book dated 31st Jan 1898 as a presentation to a student
The book is a Red Hardback - titled - 'THE ARABIAN NIGHTS' inside cover title 'The Thousand and One Nights' commonly called 'THE ARABIAN NIGHTS ENTERTAINMENT'
Translated from the Arabic by Edward William Lane and printed in London by BLISS, LANE AND FOSTER -***** Strand, WC.
The print is very small, the 1001 stories in the 502 pages are very gory and hard going
Could it be of any value

Hi Nora - Thank you for your valuation, I did not expect the book to be valued that high. I have had it now for over 50 and it has been sitting on the bookshelf gathering dust. I do not think I have read


thank you for your expertise
