About The Book William Beckford, son of the famous Lord Mayor, was born at Fonthill, Wiltshire, England, Sept. 29, 1759, and received his education at first from a private tutor, and then at Geneva. On coming of age, he inherited a million sterling and an annual income of 100,000, and three years later he married the fourth Earl of Aboynes daughter, Lady Margaret Gordon, who died in May, 1786. In 1787 Beckfords romance, the History of the Caliph Vathek, appeared in its original French, an English translation of the work having been published anonymously and surreptitiously in 1784. Vathek was written by Beckford in 1781 or 1782 at a single sitting of three days and two nights.

Beckford was a great traveller and a great connoisseur and collector both of pictures and of books- and, apart from Vathek and some volumes of travels, he is best known for having secluded himself for twenty years in the magnificent residence which he built in Fonthill.

He died on May 2, 1844. For more eBooks visit www.kartindo.com
