"Princess Badoura: a tale from the Arabian nights" is a 1913 short story written by Laurence Housman and illustrated by Edmund Dulac. Based on a tale from "One Thousand and One Nights", this beautifully-illustrated story is highly recommend for lovers of folklore and collectors of classic fairy tales. Edmund Dulac (1882 - 1953) was a French-born British illustrator and stamp designer. He was born in Toulouse and studied law there, but later, realising that his true passion was illustration, studied art the École des Beaux-Arts. Having moved to London in the early 20th century, Dulac received his first commission to illustrate the novels of the Brontë Sisters in 1905. During the First World War, he illustrated relief books; and after the war, when children's books were in low demand, he began illustrating magazines. Other notable works containing Dulac's illustrations include: "The Sleeping Beauty and Other Fairy Tales" (1910), "Stories from Hans Christian Andersen" (1911), and "The Bells and Other Poems by Edgar Allan Poe" (1912). Pook Press celebrates the great 'Golden Age of Illustration' in children's literature - a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration. We publish rare and vintage classic illustrated books, in high-quality colour editions, so that the masterful artwork and story-telling can continue to delight both young and old.

Alf layla wa layla (known in English as A Thousand and One Nights or The Arabian Nights) changed the world on a scale unrivalled by any other literary text. The appearance of Antoine Galland's twelve-volume Mille et Une Nuits in English translation (1704-1717), closely followed by the Grub Street English edition, introduced the text into European circulation. Over a period of some three hundred years following itseighteenth-century translation into French and English, a chain of editions, compilations, translations, and variations circled the globe to reveal the absorption of The Arabian Nights into English, French, Arabic, and Latin American literature. This collection of essays by noted scholars from 'East', 'West', and in-between reassesses theinfluence of the Nights in Enlightenment and Romantic literature, the nature of 'Orientalism', and the text's vigorous after-life in the contemporary Arabic novel. The volume concludes with an extensive bibliography of scholarship on The Arabian Nights and lists editions.

Edmund Dulac (1882-1953) was a French book illustrator prominent during the so called Golden Age of Illustration. He spent a very brief period at the Acadmie Julien in Paris in 1904 before moving to London. He then began an association with the Leicester Gallery and Hodder & Stoughton; the gallery would commission paintings from Dulac and then sell the rights to Hodder & Stoughton, who would publish the books while the gallery would sell the paintings. Books produced under this arrangement by Dulac include Stories from the Arabian Nights (1907), an edition of Shakespeare's The Tempest (1908), The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam (1909), Stories from Hans Christian Andersen (1911) and Princess Badoura (1913). During World War I he contributed to relief books, including King Albert's Book, Princess Mary's Gift Book, and, unusually, his own Edmund Dulac's Picture Book for the French Red Cross (1915). After the war, the deluxe edition illustrated book became a rarity and Dulac's career in this field was over. His last such books were Edmund Dulac's Fairy Book (1916), the Tanglewood Tales (1918) and the exquisite The Kingdom of the Pearl (1920).
