Arabian Nights Images - Oscar Fabrès

This lovely little book, The Arabian Nights published by Hyperion Press, New York, in 1944, was illustrated by Oscar Fabrès. According to the dust jacket, the artist is one of the most famous Parisian cartoonists and his drawings have a "light Gallic wit." What could I possibly add to that?

The picture at right is captioned "The Princess sees the Talking Bird" from the story "The Talking Bird, the Singing Tree, and the Golden Water."

This is from "The Magic Horse"; the caption is "'Do not send me away,' he begged."
And here we have Morgiana, from "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves." This one is captioned "She knew some danger lurked here."
And here she is again, doing our favorite thing: "Morgiana dances before the disguised robber."
This is from "The Young King of the Black Isles."
