The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent shape, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them. If that is important to you, please call ahead or say so in the order comments! 

W. H. D. Rouse (1863-1950) crafted an English-language translation of One Thousand and One Nights. 

Walter Stanley Paget (1854-1930) was an English artist and illustrator whose fantastic work adorned books and magazines in late nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century London. Other notable works illustrated by Paget include: The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (1891-93), The Hound of the Baskervilles (1902), and Thomas Hardy: A Bibliographical Study (1968).

This classic collection would make for perfect bedtime reading material and is not to be missed by lovers of folklore and classic fairy tales.
