Containing A better Account of the Customs, Manners, and Religion of the Eastern Nations, viz. Tartars, Persians, and Indians, than is to be met with in any Author hitherto published.

Note
Thirteen four-volume editions of the Arabian Nights were published between 1700 and 1789. The Society Library's edition cannot be identified as it was not listed with publication information in the 19th century catalogs. See list of ESTC links at left for editions printed between 1767 and 1785.

This book was lost between 1792 and 1800; the 1800 supplemental catalog lists a 4 volume edition of 1792. See related books tab for circulation records for this title after 1792.
