Book summary

Excellent version of this Children's Classic by the world renown Sir Richard Burton [not the actor for heaven's sake] rather the English explorer, translator, writer, soldier, orientalist, ethnologist, linguist, poet, hypnotist, fencer and diplomat. He was known for his travels and explorations within Asia and Africa as well as his extraordinary knowledge of languages and cultures. According to one count, he spoke 29 European, Asian, and African languages, and according to history one of the few white Europeans to ever enter the forbidden, Holy Mosque of Mecca in disguise. Includes Illustrations from the rare 1859 version. Offered here in a near fine hardcover with dustwrapper. ~~thank you for shopping with us!
