Lady Anna

New York: Harper and Brothers, 1874. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. A Very Good + copy of the first American edition, first printing of Anthony Trollope's novel "Lady Anna", bound without the original wrappers in half-leather and decorative boards and containing the title page with the requisite listing of twenty-seven (27) Anthony Trollope titles to the title page verso and the text (thus omitting pages not necessary to the presentation of the novel. "Lady Anna" is here bound with a later (1874) Harper's printing of Phineas Finn, and the Harper's printing of "Foul Play" by Trollope's fellow-writer Charles Reade. (Seeing two Trollope titles bound with a Charles Reade novel is, we find, entertaining as Trollope and Reade, an English novelist and dramatist, were friends until, while Trollope was out of the UK, Reade wrote and had produced a Play called "Shilly Shally" (1872) based on Trollope's novel "Ralph the Heir" (1871) without first obtaining Trollope's consent -- leading to Trollope's breaking with Reade for the rest of their joint lives. The First American edition of Trollope's "Lady Anna" is quite scare to the market -- much scarcer than is the first English edition. In over four decades of diligent searching for Trollope scarcities and rarities, this the only copy of the first American edition in any format or condition that we ever have seen. A Very Good + copy. [ QUITE SCARCE TO RARE. Very good +. Item #3131
