The Chronicles of Barsetshire:] The Warden; Barchester Towers; Doctor Thorne; Framley Parsonage; The Small House at Allington; The Last Chronicle of Barset.
London: Chapman and Hall, 1878–93 - 6 works in 8 volumes, octavo (187 × 123 mm). Recent red crushed half morocco by Bayntun-Riviere, red cloth sides, gilt titles to spines, top edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Illustrated bookplate to front pastedowns. An excellent, clean set. With wood-engraved frontispieces by F. A. Fraser. An attractively bound set of the collected Chronicles of Barsetshire. Trollope was famously never published in a complete uniform edition and Chapman and Hall's collected Chronicles of Barsetshire, which was originally published in 1878, is the nearest attempt at a collected edition, aside from the Chapman and Hall and Ward, Lock and Co.'s cheaply produced editions. This set is a reissue of the 1878 edition."The history of [Chapman & Hall's 1878 collected edition of the Chronicles of Basetshire] is not without interest. Trollope himself was very anxious that his Barsetshire novels should be brought together in a uniform series. Originally the venture was to comprise only six volumes, for he did not himself regard The Small House as one of the Barsetshire set; but he consented to its inclusion at the urgent request of Chapman & Hall" (Sadleir p. 245). Sadleir pp. 246-8.
