"A loss that can be repaired by money is not of such very great importance."

– The Arabian Nights

During the Golden Age of Islam in South and West Asia, a collection of tales and stories was gathered and called "One Thousand and One Arabian Nights." It was first translated into French by Antoine Galland between 1704-17, which helped establish a positive attitude toward Islam in the Western world. It is often known in English as the Arabian Nights.

This edition includes incredible wood engravings throughout, each of which are taken from works by the Dalziel brothers and a few others including Pinwell, Watson, Tenniel, Houghton, and Millais.

Michael Bond - the man behind Paddington Bear

Michael Bond - the man behind Paddington Bear

"All the same ... it's a very important name. And I don't expect there are many bears in the world called Paddington!"

A lonely toy bear on an empty shop shelf on Christmas Eve in 1956 first captured the attention of Michael Bond, who kindly shared Paddington with the world.
