"Stories from the Arabian Nights is Dulac's most important book...The first printing in England of The Arabian Nights in October was so sought after that a second printing had to be run in November to provide books to sell at the Leicester Galleries' November-December showing of Dulac's work...This exhibit started Dulac's lengthy relationship with the Leicester Galleries and also with Hodder and Stoughton who henceforth published each year a book with his pictures, thereby solidifying his reputation as an illustrator" (Hughey) Hughey 16b.[Attributes: First Edition]
