THE favourable reception which has been ac corded to the first edition of these outlines of the Muhammadan system has encouraged rne to put forth a revised and enlarged edition. I am glad of the opportunity ; for, the first edition contained numerous errors, consequent upon my bringing it out during a short and hurried visit to England, in the summer of 1875. Still, notwithstanding its numerous and manifest shortcomings, it has been pronounced by an eminent Arabic scholar, as not only " about the best outlines of Muslim faith he had seen"; but as having " the rare merit of Icing accurate."
