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.
