TROLLOPE, Anthony, 1815-1882 :
London : Richard Bentley, 1858 [but 1857]. First edition. "The best of the new novels. The author has left Barchester Cloisters and now finds his way into the civil service, upon which he has ideas as strong as those he has expressed about ecclesiastical endowments ... unusually good, and the character-painting ... excellent" (The Examiner, 19th December 1857). Trollope regarded it as "certainly the best novel I had as yet written" - notable also for what he regarded as his first successful love scene and the first appearance of Chaffanbrass. Three volumes. Demy 12mo (181 x 111mm). iv,340; iv,322; iv,334pp. Bound in a neat, early twentieth-century, half blue calf, banded and gilt; marbled endpapers; sprinkled edges; some very minor rubbing and bruising; internally a little thumbed, with small marks, some creases, and very occasional annotation and underlining, but a good set of a scarce early title, most of the original 1,000 copies being intended for library lending. Sadleir 6.
