Note 003
From Chapter 65 of the Decline & Fall

I am ignorant whether the original institution, in the Turki or Mogul language, be still extant. The Persic version, with an English translation, and most valuable index, was published (Oxford, 1783, in 4to) by the joint labors of Major Davy and Mr. White, the Arabic professor. This work has been since translated from the Persic into French (Paris, 1787), by M. Langles, a learned Orientalist, who has added the life of Timour, and many curious notes.
