Les mille et une nuits : contes arabes by Antoine Galland( Book )

"One Thousand and One Nights is a collection of Middle Eastern and South Asian stories and folk tales compiled in Arabic during the Islamic Golden Age. It is often known in English as the Arabian Nights, from the first English language edition (1706), which rendered the title as The Arabian Nights' Entertainment. The work as we have it was collected over many centuries by various authors, translators and scholars across the Middle East and North Africa. The tales themselves trace their roots back to ancient and medieval Arabic, Persian, Indian, Egyptian and Mesopotamian folklore and literature. In particular, many tales were originally folk stories from the Caliphate era, while others, especially the frame story, are most probably drawn from the Pahlavi Persian work Hazar Afsan which in turn relied partly on Indian elements. Though the oldest Arabic manuscript dates from the 14th century, scholarship generally dates the collection's genesis to around the 9th century. -- from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Si Antoine Galland (1646-1715) doit d'être passé à la postérité à sa "traduction" des 'Mille et une nuits', il n'en était pas moins avant tout un savant versé tant en numismatique qu'en orientalisme. Pour soutenir sa mémoire, il prit note, dès son adolescence, semble-t-il, mais peut-être pas de manière continue, des événements du jour qui le concernaient de près ou de loin. Ce journal, dont seuls quelques volumes nous sont parvenus, concerne deux périodes: les années 1672-1673, époque où il se trouvait à Constantinople, et les années 1708-1715, années qui correspondent à la fin de sa vie, lorsqu'il vivait à Paris. Cette dernière période est indubitablement une des plus riches sur le plan professionnel puisqu'elle voit A. Galland accéder à la plus haute fonction qu'il pouvait espérer jamais atteindre: la chaire de langue arabe au Collège royal (1709). Le journal de ces années constitue donc une source de première importance tant pour retracer les dernières années de la vie de ce savant digne représentant de la République des Lettres, qui nous fait part consciencieusement du contenu des séances bi-hebdomadaires de la vénérable Académie royale des inscriptions, que pour reconstruire son réseau de correspondants, d'amis, de collègues dans ce Siècle des Lumières qui est en train de se dessiner
