Note 047
From Chapter 50 of the Decline & Fall

The original plan of the Caaba (which is servilely copied in Sale, the Universal History, etc.) was a Turkish draught, which Reland (de Religione Mohammedica, p. 113 - 123) has corrected and explained from the best authorities. For the description and legend of the Caaba, consult Pocock, (Specimen, p. 115 - 122,) the Bibliotheque Orientale of D'Herbelot, (Caaba, Hagier, Zemzem, etc.,) and Sale (Preliminary Discourse, p. 114 - 122.).
