Byron used the work as a source.

(TULLY, Miss). Narrative of a ten years' residence at Tripoli in Africa: from the original correspondence in the possession of the family of the late Richard Tully, Esq. the British Consul. Comprising authentic memoirs and anecdotes of the reigning Bashaw, his family, and other persons of distinction; also, an account of the domestic manners of the Moors, Arabs, and Turks. London, printed for Henry Colburn, 1816.4to. Contemporary half calf, with green morocco title-label to spine. With engraved folding map and 5 fine hand-coloured aquatints. XIII,(2),370 pp. First edition; with armorial bookplate. - These letters were written by the sister or sister-in-law of Richard Tully, British consul at Tripoli from 1783 to 1793. The work is particularly valuable for its details of family life in the seraglio. The female members of Tully's family were on intimate terms with the Bashaw's family and were admitted into all the life of the seraglio. This is one of the most important records of Tripolitan life during the 18th century. - 'It is a delicious mixture of sensational subject-matter and deadpan delivery' (Robinson, Wayward Women, p.248). The very attractive plates depict genre scenes and costumes. - A fine copy.Abbey, Travel, 299; Tooley, Coloured plates, 493; Blackmer Collection 1682; Atabey Collection 1241. [Boeknr.: 1753 ]
