Excerpt from The Thousand and One Nights: Or, the Arabian Nights' Entertainments

The princes having disguised themselves, left the city secretly, and' travelled till evening, when they arrived at the sea-side. At. Daybreak they were alarmed by afright ful noise from the sea, and had scarce time to climb up into a tree, when they perceived a large column arise in the midst of the water, and advance toward the shore. They presently found that it was oneof those malignant genii, who are enemies to mankind, and always doing them mischief. He was black, terrific, and appeared like a giant of prodigious stature; he carried on his head a great glass box, which shut with four locks. Having laid his box down, be seated himself by it, and opened it; when there came out a beautiful lady, magnificently dressed. She sat down by the monster, who said to her in a voice of tenderness, My charming mistress, whom I stole on your wedding day, and have loved with so much constancy ever since, let me repose a while by you; I came hither on purpose to take rest. Having spoke thus, he laid down his huge head on the lady's knees and fell asleep.
