THE AMERICAN SENATOR
1877 - In Three Volumes. London: Chapman and Hall, 1877. Original pinkish-ochre cloth decorated in black. First Edition, published at the end of this novel's serialization in Temple Bar magazine.~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].~The name of the American senator who comes to England with Arabella and her mother? -- Elias Gotobed.~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. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
