THE TALES OF THE GENII; OR, THE DELIGHTFUL LESSONS OF HORAM, THE SON OF ASMAR. [TWO VOLUMES]
by Morell, Sir Charles [Ridley, Rev. James, pseudonym]
London: Wenman and Hodgson, 1793. Reprint.

The Tales of the Genii, a pastiche of the Arabian Nights, were allegedly composed by an imam named Horam and translated from a Persian manuscript, but in actuality, they were products of Ridley's imagination.
