From the book's Foreword:

It is a curious proven fact that because the dying of the overdue lamented Aladdin, not anything turns out to were heard of his remarkable Lamp. Mr. Arthur Collins and different scholars of historic lore were capable, after sufferer study, to reconstruct for us the fellow Aladdin in his behavior as he lived and to put ahead of our eyes a devoted photo of his instances. Alike in literature and at the degree the Lamp performs an all-important half; and this makes all of it the weirder that its next background must have been so solely misplaced.

I myself incline to the speculation that Aladdin allowed the key of his talisman to die with him, and that his widow disposed of an item whose presence in her husband's number of articles of "bigotry and advantage " she had continuously resented, for what it's going to fetch. Its culture as soon as damaged, we can't think that an previous battered lamp concerning one part of its floor a half-effaced inscription in forgotten characters may allure a lot realization as an objet d'art. in truth, it might be with no worth or
interest other than to a pupil realized adequate to interpret the inscription aforesaid that could be rendered in our tongue " Rub Lightly."

All this, notwithstanding, is mere conjecture. it's in line with my wisdom, unintentionally received, lamp of this description shaped a part of a role lot of " various curios " obtained by means of the govt so that it will next reissue within the type of buttons for infantrymen' tunics. This truth, taken together with the bizarre occasions i'm approximately to narrate, does lend a definite colour to the speculation which I help; yet of sturdy facts i will in fact provide not anything.

Some of Alf Higgins' adventures have formerly seemed within the Passing exhibit. The Editor of that paper, by means of the curiosity he confirmed in Alf, has incurred the grave accountability of encouraging me to write down this e-book approximately him.
