Three cheers for the public domain! So, yes, it is from 1801 and the language is a bit old-fashioned, but no matter: thanks to this beautiful book from London in 1801, I am able to include the Tutinameh in my course!!! That makes amends, at least in part, for not having a good public domain translation of Shahnameh that my students would like. So, no "Tales of the King" ... but "Tales of the Parrot" - yes!!! And what a fabulous thing to have to pair up with the units already in place from 1001 Nights! :-)
