Ralph the Heir [Scarce Yellowback Edition]
London: Ward, Lock, and Co., [1874]. Hardcover. Very Good +. A Very Good + or better copy of the undated yellowback "New Edition" of Trollope's "Ralph the Heir" which we estimate it to have been published about 1874. Though showing some wear (some splitting to the top and bottom portions of the front joint -- but holding quite well, a surface rub slightly below the center of the front board, and rather light edge wear) this copy is in surprisingly nice condition for a yellowback book of this era. This issue would have been sold at the Railway stalls for passengers to read while traveling and was not intended to be the sort of copy that the buyer would keep in the manner he or she might keep a first edition Trollope. The yellowback books were, in essence, the paperback books of Trollope's day and were generally too fragile to last to the present day. A Very Good + or better copy of a quite scarce Trollope in the fragile yellowback format. QUITE SCARCE.
