Publisher's Summary

The original story of Aladdin is a Middle-Eastern folk tale. It concerns an impoverished young man named Aladdin. He is recruited by a sorcerer from the Maghreb, who passes himself off as the brother of Aladdin's late father and convinces Aladdin and his mother of his goodness by making arrangements to set up the lad as a wealthy merchant. His real motive is to persuade young Aladdin to retrieve a wonderful oil lamp from a booby-trapped magic cave.

Stilted translation

I was disappointed in the Payne translation. There are other and IMO better translations available in the public domain.

Also, it would have been nice to have had a warning or explanation that the first 30 minutes or so of this recording is NOT Aladdin but a completely different story!
