Maxfield Parrish’s illustrations for The Arabian Nights (1909, 1923)

In truth, the Book of Camaralzaman,
Schemselnihar and Sinbad, Scheherezade

The peerless, Bedreddin, Badroulbadour,
Cairo and Serendib and Candahar,
And Caspian, and the dim, terrific bulk 

Ice-ribbed, fiend-visited, isled in spells and storms 
 
Of Kaf…. That centre of miracles
The sole, unparalleled Arabian Nights
