About This Item
London: Chapman and Hall, nd. Finely bound example of Trollope's first published novel. Octavo, bound in three quarters morocco over pebbled boards with gilt titles and tooling to the spine, marbled endpapers. In very good condition. The narrative of The Macdermots of Ballycloran "...chronicles the tragic demise of a small Catholic landowning family in the Protestant-dominated Ireland of the mid nineteenth century. It focuses on the struggle of Thady Macdermot to keep his sinking property afloat..." (Sutherland, 393).

Nicely bound hard covered photo-copy of an original book, however, every even numbered page (left side) was too dark to read. Very disappointing and disconcerting, and impossible for an elderly father's eyes.
