"I regard this as the best novel I have written."Anthony Trollope. The Last Chronicle of Barset. London: Smith, Elder and Co., 1867.
First edition. Two octavo volumes, complete. 384; 384 pages. Illustrations. Illustrated frontispieces.
Half-bound in polished calf over marbled paper boards by R. Nelson. Red and black title labels to spine. Gilt lettering and rules. All edges marbled. Leather is scarred and worn; spines slightly faded. Head of spine of Volume II snagged. Marbled paper on boards is rubbed and torn, with some surface loss. Hinges cracked, but bindings quite sturdy. Scattered foxing throughout both volumes. Overall, very good.
Originally issued in thirty-two weekly parts, this is the first issue in book form. Barset was Trollope's personal favorite of his novels: "I regard this as the best novel I have written [...] there is a true savour of English life all through the book."
