A Novel. In Three Volumes.London, Chapman & Hall, 1859 Stock Code: 128270
NotesFirst edition, issued without half-titles or ads, of Trollope's "curiously uncommon book" (Sadleir). Much of the novel's action takes place in Jerusalem and the Holy Land, unlike the author's best known novels mostly based in England.
An attractive set.
3 volumes, octavo (186 x 118 mm). Finely bound by Zaehnsdorf in brown-orange half morocco, titles and decorations in gilt to spines, marbled boards ruled in gilt, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Housed in custom brown buckram slipcase.
Each volume with two bookplates of H. C. Drayton and Ernest G. Mocatta to front endpapers. Light rubbing and scuffing, faint toning to contents, else internally clean; a very good set indeed.
