Encyclopedia > J. C. Mardrus

Joseph Charles Mardrus (1868 - 1949) was a French physician, and a noted translator. He was born in Cairo. He is now best known for his translation of the 1001 Nights from Arabic into French, which was published from 1898 to 1904, and was translated into English by Powys Mathers.

As a medical man, he worked for the French government, being sent to Morocco and the Far East. He produced other translations, some illustrated by the Swiss engraver François-Louis Schmied (1873-1941).

He married the novelist and poet Lucie Delarue in 1900. They divorced later, around 1915.
