The Perfumed Garden is a sex manual written in erotic prose. It gives advice on bodily appearance, sexual technique, and also on the symptoms and remedies for sexual diseases. Al-Nafzawi also describes the sex of animals and interprets dreams. The advice and technical descriptions are interspersed with stories which should give the manual context and amuse the reader
The perfumed garden of the Shaykh Nefzawi by ʻUmar ibn Muḥammad Nafzāwī( Book )

22 editions published between 1963 and 2010 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The venerable civilisation of India produced two ancient and celebrated manuals of erotic technique, conceiebed and worded in a spirit at once reverential and human. There are the famed Kama Sutra, and the lesser-known Ananga Ranga. They formed the first two volumes of Sir Richard Burton's admirable privately printed translations for the Kama Shatra Society of London and Benares. The third volume, also privately printed in a limited edition for subscribers only, was issued during 1886. This was the comprehensive Arabian treatise known as The Perfumed Garden, compiled and written by Umar ibn Muḥammad Nafzāwī. It is a reprint of Burton's classic text which we now offer to the public, preceded by a new and lengthy introduction by Alan Hull Walton detailing the history of the work, its extensive bibliography, its background, and its sociological importance. The Perfumed Garden has been described as a panegyric of love, a song of sensual delights, a collection of joyous imaginings, a work of rare and curious erotic knowledge, a contribution to anthropological and ethnological research, useful alike to the student of languages, of orientalism, and of psychology." -- from the book jacket

Illustrated American edition of Fifteenth-century Arabic sex manual
The perfumed garden of sensual delight = Ar-rawd̲ al-ʻât̲ir fî nuzhatiʼl khât̲ir by ʻUmar ibn Muḥammad Nafzāwī( Book )

12 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Perfumed Garden of Sensual Delight has a bad reputation and a tattered history. For over a century, it has been known in English through Sir Richard Burton's bizarre translation (from the French) which consistently elaborated and misrepresented the original. If ever a book needed demystifying, it is this one. Although remarkably lewd at times, it does not linger over details nor does it contrive to excite. It does not, therefore, qualify as pornography. In fact, The Perfumed Garden of Sensual Delight is nothing more than a manual for the ordinary, married man of its author's time and place - Tunisia, in the early part of the 15th century - but one that is not without some entertainment value." "The present translation is not only the first, published English version to be based upon an established Arabic text, but also the first to be translated directly from the original Arabic at all."--Jacket
