New Arabian Nights - Robert Louis Stevenson

1976 - The Limited Editions Club, Connecticut
A bright, handsome edition of Robert Louis Stevenson’s earliest collection of stories with illustrations by Clark Hutton.

Originally featured in publications such as the
London Magazine during the 1870s, and first published in book form in 1882. The title is an allusion to the collection of tales, One Thousand an One Nights, stories that Stevenson had previously read and liked. Although Stevenson’s stories were set in contemporary Europe, he stylistically drew on the nested structure of the Arabian tales in creating his own collection.
