      1. B. & G.Cat., No. 37, p. 25, states that this facetious work is very rare.
      2. Iolo Williams, op. cit., p. 33, identifies 'Noureddin Alraschin' as pseudonym of John Armstrong. It is a poor version of the Arabic name Nur-ud-Din al-Rashid.
      3. Although no copy of the 1st ed. has been located, it is certain that one was published in 1748; see John Armstrong, Miscellanies (London, 1770).
