Edward William Lane (1801–1876) was a noted scholar of the Arabic language and Arabic literature. He was born in Hereford and sent to university at Cambridge, with the plan that he should enter his father's profession. However, he abandoned the university and moved to London, where he trained to become an engraver. He sailed to Egypt in 1825, where he devoted himself to the study of Arabic, Arabic literature, and Islam, observed Egyptian manners and customs, and adopted the dress and habits of an Egyptian man of learning. He returned to England in 1828, with the draft of a travel book embellished with his own drawings. After many rejections, he finally found a publisher -- however, rather than putting the book through the press in its original form, he insisted on revisiting Egypt in 1833 to check or expand his earlier observations.The resulting book, Manners and Customs of the Modern Egyptians, was published in 1836 and became a surprise best-seller. From 1838 through 1840, he issued the several volumes of his translation of The Thousand and One Nights (Arabian Nights). This too was a great popular success. A very fine set.
