Description: The illustrated version of W. Somerset Maugham's Princess September and the Nightingale was originally published in 1939 by Oxford University Press. Long out of print, it is now reissued with the original text and illustrations. The story is a classic tale of Siam (now Thailand), one of the few available that portray this culture. It is a sophisticated fairy tale about Princess September, the ninth daughter of the King of Siam and the proud owner of a gifted nightingale. This bird brings good luck to the princess but not to her eight envious sisters, who nearly bring about its death by a rather mean trick. The nightingale's life is saved, however, and Princess September grows up to be very beautiful and marry a splendid prince.

W. Somerset Maugham has told this tale with charm and humor. Princess September and her sisters are ordinary people despite their royal titles.
