French translations or compositions based on the Arabian Nights, 1780

 Sub-Series
Derived from Wortley Montagu MSS. IV and part of V (MSS. Bodl. Or. 553-4).

They are neatly written, mainly in the hand of Mme de Starck, partly (d. 23, pp.iii-xii, d. 25 passim, d. 26/2 and 4) in the same hand as MSS. Beckford d. 13 and d. 18, with some alterations in an unidentified hand and in Beckford's hand. Occasionally a word or phrase in Arabic is written above the line (e.g. MS. Beckford d. 25, p. 33). For Al Raoui, see MS. Beckford d. 20
