From Chapter 50 of the Decline & Fall

See the Specimen Historiae Arabum of Pocock, p. 2, 5, 86, etc.. The journey of M. d'Arvieux, in 1664, to the camp of the emir of Mount Carmel (Voyage de la Palestine, Amsterdam, 1718), exhibits a pleasing and original picture of the life of the Bedoweens, which may be illustrated from Niebuhr (Description de l'Arabie, p. 327 - 344) and Volney (tom. i. p. 343 - 385), the last and most judicious of our Syrian travellers.
