Barchester Towers

TROLLOPE, Anthony

London: Longman, Brown, Green, Longmans, & Roberts, 1857. A Remarkably Nice Copy In The Original Cloth TROLLOPE, Anthony. Barchester Towers. In Three Volumes. Vol. I. [II. III.] London: Longman, Brown, Green, Longmans, & Roberts, 1857. First edition, first issue (with "tattooed" for "tabooed" on page 269, line 24 in the second volume). Three octavo volumes (7 11/16 x 4 3/4 inches: 196 x 121 mm.) [i-vii]viii, [1]2-305[-308]; [i-iii]iv,[1]2-299[300]; [i-iii]iv, [1]2-321[-324]. No half-titles called for in Vols. ll and lll. Advertisement leaf for The Warden preceding half-title and two pages of publisher's ads at end of vol. 1; One leaf of publisher's advertisements at end of vol. 3; half-title in vol. 1 only, as called for. Publishers first issue binding of original light brown cloth, uniform with The Warden, decoratively panelled in blind on the boards, spines ruled in blind and lettered in gilt. Original brick red endpapers with the requisite advertisements on the front and back paste-downs as per the first binding-up of the sheets. Small tear (just over one inch) to the upper margin of the advertisement leaf in vol. 1 for The Warden (not affecting text). The inner hinges on all three volumes have been expertly repaired and the spine ends strengthened (not repaired). A few corners lightly bumped, some with the board just showing through. The spines are very slightly and uniformly faded. Overall, a near fine and remarkably nice copy of this very early and extremely important Trollope novel, the second of the Barsetshire novels, the series which established and defined his early career. Rare in the original cloth, particularly so in the first issue binding. Sotheby's New York sold the Frederick R. Jones; Michael Sadleir; Bradley Martin copy in May 1990 for $18,700. The set was near fine and un-touched -but it was in the 'secondary binding' with 'brown' endpapers, no advertisement for The Warden, and a 24-page publisher's catalog at the end dated October 1860. The second novel in Trollope's Barsetshire series, only his fifth novel overall, and his best known novel. Not all the copies were initially bound up. The earliest ones can be distinguished by the brick-red endpapers and presence of the publisher's ads, all present here. In later issues the advertisement for The Warden in volume one was often excised, and the endpapers were brown. The endpapers in this copy are all brick-red with advertisements for "Books on Natural History, Botany, &c." on the front paste-downs and advertisements for "Works on the Arts, Manufactures, and Architecture" on the rear paste-downs. The rear paste-down of volume 1 on this set bears the binder's ticket of well known firm of Westleys Co., London. Barchester Towers (1857) is the second in the series of novels known as the Chronicles of Barsetshire, which include The Warden (1855), Barchester Towers (1857), Doctor Thorne (1858), Framley Parsonage (1861), The Small House at Allington (1864), and The Last Chronicle of Barset (1867). Barchester Towers is possibly Trollope's best known work. Among other things it satirizes the then raging antipathy in the Church of England between High Church and Evangelical adherents. Sadleir, Trollope, 5; Wolff 6766: NCBEL III, 882.

Barchester Towers.

Trollope, Anthony

London: Longman, Brown, Green, Longmans, & Roberts, 1857. Rare first editions, first issue of one of Trollope's most important novels. Octavo, original cloth, blind stamped boards. Half-title present in Volume I, brick-red endpapers with advertisements. Sadleir 5. Bookplates of Oliver Brett on front free endpapers and of Duff Cooper on versos. In near fine condition. Each volume is housed in a three quarter calf clamshell box. Uncommon set in the original cloth of one of Trollope's most important novels. Barchester Towers is the second novel in Trollope's series known as the "Chronicles of Barsetshire". Among other things it satirises the antipathy in the Church of England between High Church and Evangelical adherents. Trollope began writing this book in 1855. He wrote constantly and made himself a writing-desk so he could continue writing while travelling by train. "Pray know that when a man begins writing a book he never gives over", he wrote in a letter during this period. "The evil with which he is beset is as inveterate as drinking - as exciting as gambling." In his autobiography, Trollope observed "In the writing of Barchester Towers I took great delight. The bishop and Mrs. Proudie were very real to me, as were also the troubles of the archdeacon and the loves of Mr. Slope". When he submitted his finished work, his publisher, William Longman, initially turned it down, finding much of it to be full of "vulgarity and exaggeration." Recent critics offer a more sanguine opinion, "Barchester Towers is many readers' favorite Trollope", wrote The Guardian, which included it in its list of "1000 novels everyone must read."
