The Life of Mahomet From Original Sources
The Life of Mahomet, by Sir William Muir, was first published in four volumes in the year , with profuse notes and references, as well as introductory chapters on the Early History of Arabia, and an Essay on the 'Sources for the Biography of Mahomet -- the Coran and Tradition. Moreover, most of the notes and all the references to original authorities were left out, the curious readers being referred for the latter to the first and larger form of the work. The text itself remained practically unaltered in all three editions. The present text is a revision in some matters of detail of that of the third edition. All the learned author's expressions of opinion and the view he took of particular events have, of course, been left unaltered.
