Born in Marylebone, London in 1824, Collins family enrolled him at the Maida Hill Academy in 1835, but then took him to France and Italy with them between 1836 and 1838. Returning to England, Collins attended Coles boarding school, and completed his education in 1841, after which he was apprenticed to the tea merchants Antrobus & Co.

in the Strand. In 1846, Collins became a law student at Lincolns Inn, and was called to the bar in 1851, although he never practiced. It was in 1848, a year after the death of his father, that he published his first book, The Memoirs of the Life of William Collins, Esq., R.A., to good reviews.

The 1860s saw Collins creative high-point, and it was during this decade that he achieved fame and critical acclaim, with his four major novels, The Woman in White (1860), No Name (1862), Armadale (1866) and The Moonstone (1868).

The Moonstone, meanwhile is seen by many as the first true detective novel - T. S. Eliot called it the first, the longest, and the best of modern English detective novels...in a genre invented by Collins and not by Poe. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive.
