About this Item

This is a rare yet accessible 40 volume collection of the prolific Anthony Trollope's major novels, as assembled in a nearly complete set by Dodd, Mead and Company during the years 1904-1911. The number of Trollope's novels actually published is variously stated as 43, 47, or something else. These notes are based on information from Adam Gopnik's New Yorker article of May 4, 2015 -- ("Why He's Still the Novelist of the Way We Live Now"), Victorian era scholar Catherine Pope, and various Google references, including Wikipedia. Trollope's first major success came with "The Warden" (1855) -- the first of six novels set in the fictional county of "Barsetshire" (often collectively referred to as the Chronicles of Barsetshire), dealing primarily with the clergy and landed gentry. Barchester Towers (1857) is probably the best-known of these. Trollope's other major series, the Palliser novels, which overlap with the Barset novels, concerned itself with politics, the wealthy, industrious Plantagenet Palliser and his delightfully spontaneous, even richer wife Lady Glencora. Trollope's popularity and critical success later diminished, but he continued to write prolifically. In addition to his novels, Trollope wrote dozens of short stories and a few books on travel. Today he is undergoing yet another revival, as many modern critics regard his work as exceedingly relevant and insightful to our own times. Perhaps Trollope's single book that achieves old-fashioned greatness as a tale of moral testing is ¿The Last Chronicle of Barset.¿ It is the Palliser series, the metropolitan novels that Trollope wrote in the eighteen-sixties and seventies, that make him an entirely modern writer. ¿Phineas Finn¿ may be the best novel in English about a young man¿s ambition and ascension in the city. It is the the first volume in an informal series of six Palliser books, "Phineas Finn" and Phineas Redux.¿ This comprises 39 volumes: "The Chronicles of Barsetshire," The Parliamentary Novels," "The Manor House Novels," and Trollope's autobiography. For this Dodd-Mead edition all series are complete save for Vol. II of the 3 volume "The Duke's Children." (39 of 40 volumes). In addition, there are six novels from Oxford University's World Illustrated Classics, 1944-46. blue boards: John Caldigate, Mr. Scarborough's Family, Nina Balaktea/Linda Tressel (2 vols in 1) Rachel Ray, and The Golden Lion of Granpere. 16mo -- over 5 3/4 - 6 3/4" tall.
