Basile, Gianbattista. Translated by Sir Richard Burton
London: Spring Books, undated, 1960s
Sir Richard Burton's translation from 1893 is brought up to date with drawings by Michael Ayrton, providing a whiff of swinging '60s London to these bawdy tales of love from medieval Italy.
Fifty stories are interwoven, as a group of men and maidens tell stories of frustrated love.
Hardcover, with slight wear to jacket edges
