Beckford's Fonthill : The Rise of a Romantic Icon
By Robert J. Gemmett, College at Brockport Faculty emeritus.
A substantial study, bringing together the scattered evidence for the design and construction of Fonthill Abbey from the early 1790s onwards, and the available information on Beckford's sale of Fonthill to John Farquhar, and on Farquhar's subsequent sale of its contents, and reproducing several contemporary accounts of Fonthill by more or less knowledgeable visitors. Gemmett also discusses the respective publications on Fonthill by Britton and Rutter and explores the degree of co-operation extended to them by Beckford and others
