By. Samuel M. zwemer. This is a book of pictures and stories for big children and small grown-up folks; for all who love Sinbad the sailor and his strange country. It is intended to give a bird's-eye view to those who cannot take birds' wings. The stories are not as good as those of the Arabian Nights but the morals are better-and so are the pictures. Moreover the stories are true.
