The Perfumed Garden Summary

The Perfumed Garden: Based on the Original Translation by Sir Richard Burton by Umar Ibn Muhammed Al-Nefzawi

This fresh adaptation of a classic 16th-century Persian text, originally translated by Sir Richard Burton and published in the 19th century, is illustrated with paintings from the Mughal period of Persian-influenced Indian art. It is a companion volume to Burton's classic "Kama Sutra", which can be consulted as a love meditation or as a means of deepening love and fulfillment with your partner. This sensitive translation comes closer to the original of Sheik Nefzaoui, the original author of the work.

About Umar Ibn Muhammed Al-Nefzawi

Captain Sir Richard Francis Burton (1821-1890) was an English explorer, translator, writer, soldier, orientalist, ethnologist, spy, linguist, poet, fencer and diplomat. His best-known achievements include travelling in disguise to Mecca, an unexpurgated translation of One Thousand and One Nights, and bringing the Kama Sutra to publication in English - thereby introducing the world to what is now regarded as a standard work on human sexual behaviour. Following a career in the army of the East India Company serving in India (and later, briefly, in the Crimean War), he was engaged by the Royal Geographical Society to explore the east coast of Africa and led the expedition guided by the locals that discovered Lake Tanganyika. In later life he served as British consul in Fernando Po, Santos, Damascus and, finally, Trieste. He was a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and was awarded a knighthood in 1886.
