From Chapter 64 of the Decline & Fall

The origin of the Ottoman dynasty is illustrated by the critical learning of Mm. De Guignes (Hist. des Huns, tom. iv. p. 329 - 337) and D'Anville, (Empire Turc, p. 14 - 22), two inhabitants of Paris, from whom the Orientals may learn the history and geography of their own country.
