Front Cover - Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp




A Classic Folktale from

the 'Arabian Nights'


By Antoine Galland & Hanna Diyab

Translated by Richard F. Burton & John Payne

Adapted by Rachel Louise Lawrence


Scarce had Aladdin’s mother begun to rub the Lamp when there appeared to her one of the Jinn, who said to her in a voice like thunder, “Say what you want of me. Here am I, your slave and the slave of whosoever holds the Lamp.”


One of the most famous tales of the Arabian Nights, the story of Aladdin tells of a poor young man who, under false pretences, is recruited by a Magician from the Maghreb to retrieve a Wonderful Lamp from within an Enchanted Treasury. Double-crossed and trapped in an underground cave, Aladdin’s future looks bleak until he encounters his first Jinni, after which his life will never be the same again...


A rich tale of deceit and magic, vengeance and love, if you want to read the complete story of Aladdin, then look no further than this unabridged edition.
