During his legendary voyages, Sinbad encountered man-eating giants, flying-men, monstrous serpents, and many other strange and terrible creatures. He found lost treasures and hidden civilizations, and survived numerous terrifying ordeals including shipwrecks, entombment, and dinner with cannibals. It is only through his resourcefulness, courage, and a great deal of luck that he survived to tell his tales.

This book retells the story of those seven voyages and places them in context. It discusses not only the greater collection of stories known as the Arabian Nights within which Sinbad appears, but also medieval Baghdad where these tales were told, the historical Abbasid Dynasty which ruled Sinbad’s home city, and the great Arabian voyages of exploration and trade which inspired these stories. It also looks at the modern incarnations of Sinbad that have appeared since his tales reached the West, including Sinbad as the swashbuckling hero of stop-motion movies, television fantasy, and animation.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
