Note 008
From Chapter 50 of the Decline & Fall

Consult, peruse, and study the Specimen Hostoriae Arabum of Pocock (Oxon. 1650, in 4to.). The thirty pages of text and version are extracted from the Dynasties of Gregory Abulpharagius, which Pocock afterwards translated (Oxon. 1663, in 4to); the three hundred and fifty- eight notes form a classic and original work on the Arabian antiquities.
