Product Description

From the Back Cover

THE CLASSIC AND TIMELESS WORK OF SIXTEENTH-CENTURY EROTIC LITERATURE

'The Perfumed Garden' has been described as a panegyric of love, a song of sensual delights, a collection of joyous imaginings, a work of rare and curious erotic knowledge. Compiled and written by Shaykh Umar ibn Muhammed al-Nefzawi in sixteenth-century Arabia, it is one of the world's great books, rivalling the 'Kama Sutra' in its sensual imagery and its teachings on the art of love.

This is a reissue of Burton’s classic text with a brilliant and illuminating introduction by Alan Hull Walton.

--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Richard Francis Burton was an explorer, translator, writer, soldier, spy, fencer, and diplomat. He is most famous for his translations of One Thousand and One Nights and the Kama Sutra and for having been the first European to visit the Great Lakes of Africa. He traveled to Mecca in disguise and spoke nearly thirty languages. He died in 1890.

As a gardener I thought I was getting a gardening book. Boy. Was I wrong!! Pornographic to say the least. I am no nun,but It made me blush. I cannot leave my kindle where my husband or the offspring can read it. Because they will wonder If the middle age crisis has hit me!!

The book content is utter rubbish, it has no literal or logical sequence, some idiots fancy
that has no bearing all that is good or decent in this world.
