1836.

“ The tale of Vathek, which was originally written in French, and published before the author had closed his twentieth year, has, for more than half a century, continued in possession of all the celebrity which it at once commanded. Vathek is, indeed, without reference to the time of life when the author penned it, a very remarkable performance." - Quarterly Review, June, 1834.

“ For correctness of costume, beauty of description, and power of imagination, . Vathek' far surpasses all European imitations. As an eastern tale, even • Rasselas' must bow before it: his happy valley will not bear a comparison with the Hall of Eblis." LORD BYRON
