Autobiography

London: William Blackwood and Sons, 1883. Second Edition. Hardcover. A Very Good copy of the second edition (printed in the same year as was the first edition), in the Publisher's original red cloth with the spines lettered and decorated in gilt and black and the front board of each volume lettered in black. The volumes are askew and each shows sunning to the spine, some cracking to the hinges, general wear, and a prior owner's signature to the half-title's recto. Volume I hosts a Preface by Trollope's son Henry where in the son explains the Autobiography's publication and his father's letter regarding the same, which letter the father gave to the son with instructions that it was not to be opened until after the father's death. The Chicago Tribune, after describing Trollope's miserable childhood and youth, and his early failures as a Post Office employee (a career at which he ultimately had remarkable success and in which he became an important and notable figure), described this Autobiography as "...a remarkable life story told in a great book...". A Very Good copy of this notable Autobiography. Very good. Item #3364
