NotesAn attractively bound set of the collected Chronicles of Barsetshire, which was first published in a complete uniform edition by Chapman & Hall in 1878, as six works in eight volumes. "Trollope himself was very anxious that his Barsetshire novels should be brought together in a uniform series. Originally the venture was to comprise only six volumes, for he did not himself regard The Small House as one of the Barsetshire set; but he consented to its inclusion at the urgent request of Chapman & Hall" (Sadleir).
6 volumes, octavo (195 x 128 mm). Finely bound for Asprey in orange half morocco, titles in gilt to spines, orange cloth boards ruled in gilt, all edges gilt, peacock marbled endpapers.
A fine set.
