Aladʹdin

,

in the Arabian Nightsʹ Tales, obtains a magic lamp, and has a splendid palace built by the genius of the lamp. He marries the daughter of the sultan of China, loses his lamp, and his palace is transported to Africa. Sir Walter Scott says, somewhat incorrectly:—

“Vanished into air like the palace of Aladdin.”

⁂ The palace did not vanish into air, but was transported to another place.
