Aladdin Or, the Wonderful Lamp

Aladdin Or, the Wonderful Lamp Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

 
The tale of Aladdin, a poor boy who finds a magic lamp containing a genie and eventually marries a princess, is one of Scheherezades from One Thousand and One Nights, and one of the best known. It has been told many times, in many forms and settings including opera, film, and of course many childrens picture books. This one - from 1934 and illustrated by C.H. Lawrence - is a fine example. 
 
The vivid imagery of Aladdins story is one reason it is so beloved over such a long period of time. The cave with its jeweled walls, the all powerful lamp, the genies sudden appearances, the Sultans court and the beautiful Princess - all these are wonderfully rendered by the artist C.H. Lawrence. Paired with a text that keeps the storys potency, but simplifies it for younger readers - this is a wonderful Aladdin for parents and children to share. 

 

About the Author

We do not know much about C.H. Lawrence, other than that he or she was active in American publishing in the early part of the 20th century. Many American illustrators of this period are similarly uncelebrated, many even uncredited. But we do know that C.H. Lawrence was a very talented illustrator of children's books.

Laughing Elephant, along with the Blue Lantern Studio and Green Tiger Press, houses one of the world's finest book and ephemera collections focusing on children's and juvenile art.
