The Tale of Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves: A Story from the Arabian Nights
Post a Comment. The treasure is in a cave, the mouth of which is sealed by magic. To her shock, she finds a gold coin sticking to the scales and tells her husband, Ali Baba's rich and greedy brother, Cassim. Under pressure from his brother, Ali Baba is forced to reveal the secret of the cave. Cassim goes to the cave and enters with the magic words, but in his greed and excitement over the treasures forgets the magic words to get back out again. The thieves find him there, and kill him. First, Morgiana purchases medicines from an apothecary, telling him that Cassim is gravely ill.
Antoine Galland , who heard the story from Syrian Maronite storyteller Hanna Diyab , added it to the Nights in the 18th century. It is one of the most familiar of the "Arabian Nights" tales, and has been widely retold and performed in many media, especially for children, where the more violent aspects of the story are often suppressed. The thieves learn this and try to kill Ali Baba, but Ali Baba's faithful slave-girl foils their plots. Ali Baba gives his son to her in marriage and keeps the secret of the treasure. Galland was an 18th-century French Orientalist who heard it in oral form from a Maronite story-teller, called Hanna Diyab , who came from Aleppo in modern-day Syria and told the story in Paris. Richard F. Burton included it in the supplemental volumes rather than the main collection of stories of his translation published as The Book of the Thousand Nights and a Night and thought its origins were Greek Cypriot.
This is a beautiful edition of the classic tale from The Thousand and One Nights. Early's highly detailed, bordered illustrations offer tiny geometric mosaics in.
