1864. With Illustrations by H. K. Browne. London: Chapman & Hall, January 1864 - August 1865. [In twenty monthly serial parts.] Original buff wrappers decorated in blue and red. First Edition, as originally issued in twenty monthly serial parts -- one of only eight Trollope novels that were issued in serial parts. This is the first of Trollope's six "Palliser" novels; Trollope later wrote in his autobiography "That which endears the book to me is the first presentation which I made in it of Plantagenet Palliser, with his wife, Lady Glencora." ~There are 40 plates -- two in each part; the illustrator listed on the front cover of the first eleven wrappers is Hablot K. Browne (who decades earlier had illustrated Dickens books as "Phiz"), but beginning with the eleventh part Browne was replaced, and his name was therefore dropped (one part late). During serialization the novel was also published in book form -- Vol I in October 1864, and Vol II in June 1865; preliminary leaves for these two volumes were provided in Parts X and XX, to assist parts-readers in binding them up into volumes.~All of the parts have their appropriate "Can You Forgive Her? Advertiser" ads at the beginning; Part X has the front ad catalogue properly dated October 1864 (in some copies it is mistakenly dated September 1864). All of the rear ads and inset slips are present, except that in Parts XIV and XV they are slightly variant from what Sadleir lists (also, Part XIX has a preliminary slip not called for by Sadleir). ~This set is in near-fine condition (actually everything except the front wrapper of Part I and the rear wrapper of Part XX is just about fine; those two covers are very good, with some darkening and edge-wear); atypically, there has not been any restoration of the spines with matching paper. In all, this is a highly desirable set of a none-too-common Trollope novel in parts; in our experience this is one of the scarcer (but not the scarcest) Trollope novel in parts. Sadleir (Trollope) 19. Housed in twin morocco-backed slipcases with inner chemises.
