THE THOUSAND AND SECOND TALE.

GODEY’S LADY’S BOOK, FEBRUARY, 1845; BROADWAY JOURNAL, II. 16.

The text follows the Broadway Journal and Griswold.

Griswold shows the insertion of several passages in the body of the text, an expansion of the notes, and a revision of scientific data. These variations, which are all noted below, are retained, the text elsewhere conforming to the Broadway Journal reading.

The Broadway Journal differs from Godey’s in no important respect, except the addition of several sentences (see below). [page 280:]
