Here is a lost illustrated masterpiece, a book so rare and sought after that only two copies can be found in world libraries. For the first time this classic work on a forgotten Arabian legend has been translated into English. This illustrated novel is presented as a "pictorial opera" of love, hashish, and tragedy in the time of Victorian erotica, and it contains the first known illustrations and descriptions of true hashish hallucinations.
This hardcover edition reproduces all fifty original erotic illustrations and colorful extras by illustrator Gottfried Sieben. This book will appeal to readers of Fitz Hugh Ludlow's Hasheesh Eater, Charles Baudelaire's Artificial Paradise, High Times magazine, and marijuana users everywhere.
