Description: "The story of Aladdin is taken from a collection of stories called The Thousand and One Nights. These stories are based on ancient Persian, Arabian and Indian tales handed down by word of mouth for hundreds of years. They first appeared in their present form, in Arabic, in 1450.
The stories are just as spellbinding today as they were in those far-off days, and are here presented in simple text so that younger readers can enjoy them."
Illustrated with a mix of excellent full-colour and three-tone monochrome illustrations. Many of the former are full-page. Illustrated monochrome pastedowns and endpapers depict key characters from the story.
Matt pictorial boards are in good overall condition. The spine and corners are bumped. Slight foxing on two pages, otherwise contents in excellent condition.
