CATALOGUE OF WORTLEY MONTAGUE
I here proceed to offer a list of the tales in the Wortley Montague MS.
(Nos. 550-556), beginning with
which contains 472 pages = 92 Nights. It is rudely written, with great care*
lessness and frequent corrections, and there is a noted improvement in the
subsequent vols. which Scott would attribute to another transcriber. This,
however, I doubt : in vol. i. the scribe does not seem to have settled down to
his work. The MS. begins abruptly and without caligraphic decoration ; nor
is there any red ink in vol. i. except for the terminal three words- The
topothesia is in the land of Sdsin, in the Isles of Al-Hind and Al-Sind ; the
elder King being called " Bdz " and " Shar-bdz " and the younger " Kahraman "
(p. i, 11. 5-6), and in the same page (1. 10) " Saharbdn, King of Samarkand" ;
while the Wazir's daughters are " Shahrzadah " and " Dunyazadah " (p. 8).
The Introduction is like that of the Mac. Edit, (my text) ; but the dialogue
between the Wazir and his Daughter is shortened, and the " Tale of the
Merchant and his Wife," including " The Bull and the Ass," is omitted. Of
novelties we find few. When speaking of the Queen and Mas'ud the Negro
(called Sa'id in my text, p. 6) the author remarks :
Take no black to lover ; pure musk tho' he be Carrion-taint shall pierce to the nose of
And in the " Tale of the Trader and the Jinni " (MS. I, 9 : see my transl. I, 25)
the 'Ifrit complains that the Merchant had thrown the date-stones without
exclaiming " Dastur ! " by thy leave.
The following is a list of the Tales in vol. i. :

The Third Shaykh's Story, Night iv 34
Scott, following " Oriental Collections," ii. 34, supposes that the latter was
omitted by M. Galland " on account of its indecency, it being a very free detail
of the amours of an unfaithful wife." The true cause was that it did not exist
in Galland's Copy of The Nights (Zotenberg, Histoire d' 'Ala al-Din, p. 37).
Scott adds, " In this copy the Genie restores the Antelope, the Dogs and the
Mule 'to their pristine forms, which is not mentioned by Galland, on their
swearing to lead virtuous lives."
Conclusion of the Trader and the Jinni, Night v 43

Tale of the Youth of Mosul whose hand was cut off. Night xcii. 466-472
(The Tale of the Jewish Doctor in my vol. i. 288-300.)
Vol. i. ends with a page of scrawls, the work of some by-gone owner.
Contains 316 pages, and includes end of Night xcii. to Night clxvi. The MS t
is somewhat better written ; the headings are in red ink and the verses are
duly divided. The whole volume is taken up by the Tale of Kamar al-Zama'n
(ist), with the episodes of Al-Amjad and Al-As'ad, but lacking that of Ni'amah
and Naomi. In Galland Kamar al-Zaman begins with Night ccxi. : in my
translation with vol. iii. 212 and concludes in vol. iv. 29. This 2nd vol.
(called in colophon the 4th Juz) ends with the date aoth Sha'abdn, A.H. 1177.
Contains 456 pages, extending from Night cccvi. (instead of Night clxvii.) to
cdxxv. and thus leaving an initial hiatus of 140 Nights (cxvi.-cccvi. C. de
Perceval, vol. viii. p. 14). Thus the third of the original eight volumes is lost.
On this subject Dr. White wrote to Scott, "One or two bundles of Arabic
manuscript, of the same size and handwriting as the second volume of the
Arabian Tales, were purchased at the sale by an agent for Mr. Beckford of
Fonthill, and I have no doubt whatever but that the part deficient in your copy
is to be found in his possession." If such be the case, and everything seems to
prove it, this volume was not No. iii. but No. iv. The MS. begins abruptly
with the continuation of the tale. There is no list of contents, and at the end
are two unimportant "copies of verses" addressed to the reader, five couplets
rhyming in imu (e.g. ta'dimu) and two in af (e.g. Salaf).
The following is a list of the contents :
