"Stories from the Arabian Nights is Dulac's most important book…The first printing in England of The Arabian Nights
in October was so sought after that a second printing had to be run in November to provide books to sell at the
Leicester Galleries' November-December showing of Dulac's work…This exhibit started Dulac's lengthy relationship with the Leicester Galleries and also with Hodder and Stoughton who henceforth published each year a book with his pictures, thereby solidifying his reputation as an illustrator" (Hughey).
