The Arabian Nights - Tales from a Thousand and One Nights Sir Richard F. Burton (Translator)

The Arabian Nights - Tales from a Thousand and One Nights translated by Sir Richard F. Burton

To my dearest Sonia

We’ve had our own 1,000 and 1 nights of marriage – more or less. Three years already! I still discover things about you I love each day, or rediscover: your constancy, your generosity, your sense of justice. I count myself a lucky man to have found you, and I hope it lasts as many years as we can count.

I love you,

Tom

[NB: this edition of The Arabian Nights was published in 2001 and came into my possession in 2011 WG.]

    Very depressing to see that a book with such a heartfelt inscription ended up at a second-hand bookshop. One wonders why.
