Arabian Nights, illustrated by Maxfield Parrish, one of America's most loved illustrator. First published in 1909 by Scribners & Sons. This is Parrish's most popular book, still in print today. It is not his best work and the quality of reproduction have lots of be desired. It is far behind the qualityof children's books published in England during the same period. Still, we'll have to note that Parrish's colors are not easy to reproduce accurately by any means.
I prefer the Poems of Childhood and in my opinion his best book, Knave of Hearts over the Arabian Nights. Enjoy these wonderful illustrations.
