Prefence:

The flattering succes of my late work on Turkey has induced me to offer to the Public the present collection of Oriental Fictions; which are genuine tales related by the professional Massaldjhes, or Story-tellers of the East, in the Harems of the walthy Turks during seasons of festivity and particularly in that of the Ramazan.



In the selection which I have made ,I have, throughout the whole work, carefully avoided the supernatural, save in one solitary instance, where the allegory was so talented and temping that I felt it would require no apology with any class of readers;preferring, in every other case, a life-like and probable chain of circumstances, to a brilliant and imposible picture. Hence my fictions neither borrow power from the Genii, terror from the Ghouls, nor grace and beaty from the Peris; they treat only of ordinary men and women; but individuals placed in positions, and actuated by feeling, almost unknown in Europe....
