THE AMERICAN SENATOR
1877. hardcover. Trollope, Anthony. THE AMERICAN SENATOR. In Three Volumes. London: Chapman and Hall, 1877. Original pinkish-ochre cloth decorated in black. 3 vols. <p>First Edition, published at the end of this novel's serialization in <i>Temple Bar</i> magazine.</p> <p><?ms_indent>THE AMERICAN SENATOR will be read for the sake of its opening chapters, which set before the reader in a few pages the whole geographical and social pattern of an English county; for the sake of its hunting episodes, which are among the best not only in Trollope, but in the whole of English fiction; and for the sake of Arabella Trefoil, a masterly study of a girl without a heart... [Sadleir].</?ms_indent></p> <p>The name of the American senator who comes to England with Arabella and her mother? -- Elias Gotobed.</p> <p>This copy is in the primary binding of pinkish-ochre cloth decorated in black (Sadleir identifies five secondary and remainder bindings, including one three-volumes in-one). This light cloth is extremely prone to soil, but this set has much less than usual: the spines are slightly darkened and there is just a bit of wear at a few binding extremities. The original yellow endpapers (a couple of them slightly cracked -- again, better than usual) bear a W.H. Smith booklabel and atop it the bookplate of (appropriately for a Trollope work) Arthur Palliser. In all, a very good-plus set, and quite difficult to find much better. Sadleir (TROLLOPE) 46. Housed in an open backed slipcase.</p> "THREE-DECKER" NOVELS (Sumner & Stillman Code:10707)
