Here is the Famous Old Tale of that Strange & Wonderful Lamp which brought the Boy Aladdin great Riches, a marvelous Palace built all in one night and a beautiful Princess for a Wife. By rubbing this Magical lamp, from a poor lad in Rags he became the rich merchant Aladdin. Elizabeth Mackinstry adds new luster to this oldest of fairy tales with her pictures in gorgeous colors and carefully patterned black-and-white. The jewels in the secret cave glow with Oriental richness; jovial genii, grinning broadly, build Aladdin's palace in a sapphire night, while the Fire-Bird and the Roc hover graciously on the outskirts, and in the background the Wicked Magician scowls in rage or leers in horrid triumph.
