‎BECKFORD William‎

‎Arabian Tale Vathek‎

‎1786. First Edition . BECKFORD William. An Arabian Tale from an Unpublished Manuscript: with Notes Critical and Explanatory Vathek. London: J. Johnson 1786. Octavo contemporary full tan speckled calf rebacked in calf-gilt red morocco spine label. $4000.First edition of Beckford’s one-of-a-kind Gothic/Orientalist fantasy Vathek with a check signed by Beckford tipped to the front free endpaper.Beckford known in his day as the wealthiest commoner in England with a penchant for collecting art and building extravagant follies such as Fonthill Abbey and Lansdown Tower originally composed this tale in French in 1782. His friend the Reverend Samuel Henley translated the manuscript into English and contributed the more than 100 pages of scholarly endnotes. Though Beckford desired his French original to be published before the English version Henley's translation appeared first. This was followed strangely enough by two very different French editions in 1787 one at Lausanne and the other at Paris one or both of these possibly retranslated from this published English edition as Henley may have had the original French manuscript in his possession leaving Beckford without a copy for himself. This English edition was published anonymously and the Preface suggests that it was translated from an Arabic manuscript. ""Vathek is undoubtedly the finest European imitation of the Arabian Nights. No one else has been able to create the bizarre detail the curious blend of the ludicrous and the horrible the tongue-in-cheek wryness of Vathek. It is still very much worth reading"" Sullivan Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural 26-7. ""A work of great beauty ingenuity and imaginative perception Beckford's Vathek is a milestone of Romantic art and a tower to be climbed by all who wish to discover the outer limits of fantasy"" Survey of Modern Fantasy Literature IV 2023-28. Issued simultaneously with a large-paper issue this copy is on ordinary paper. Bound without half title and without final blank as often. Rothschild 352 354. Morocco bookplate. Beckford's check dated 1826 instructs the recipient to pay the bearer 150 pounds.Faint foxing to preliminary leaves including title page; text generally quite clean. Extremely good in contemporary calf. unknown‎

‎Consummate Collector: William Beckford's Letters to His Bookseller‎

‎Michael Russell Publishing 2000. Mint in publishers cloth in like dustjacket. 336pp. Illustrated. 1st edition of excellent and well produced title limited to 450 copies. This collection of over 350 letters written by William Beckford to his bookseller George Clarke over the years 1830 to 1834 gives a vivid picture of the insatiable connoisseur in the act of gathering the books and prints that ultimately became part of the library of the Duke of Hamilton sold in 1882. This correspondence with the addition of Clarke's own letters to Beckford constitutes the most complete documentary record of Beckford's collecting habits and literary pursuits in existence. They are significant as historical documents that guide the reader into the golden age of the London book trade with its array of wealthy collectors publishing houses auction firms book and print dealers. They also shed light on the negotiations with the publisher Richard Bentley for the publication of Italy; with Sketches of Spain and Portugal and trace the anxiety Beckford experienced in his fruitless efforts to sell the Episodes of Vathek. The editor's explanatory notes are comprehensive revealing Beckford's enthusiasms and the fury of his attack against competitors in the field. The Consummate Collector will be warmly received by bibliophiles historians and readers interested in one of the most fascinating men of his time.
