TROLLOPE, Anthony. THE LAST CHRONICLE OF BARSET. £ 550.00

London. Smith, Elder & Co. 1867. 2 vols. pp. (iv), 384; (iv), 384. 2 frontis's, 30 plates - the majority with tissue guards, vignettes starting each chapter. 8vo. Original blue cloth with gilt decoration. 1st edition. Sadleir 26. With regard to the advert leaf some times found in Vol 2 , Sadleir says 'This leaf of advertisments is irregular in its appearance. I have noted it in real first issues and also in one copy of the second edition, but not in copies of intermediate issues.....I include it as a feature of a 'first issue' from motives of propriety rather than from conviction, and collectors who have a copy of this novel showing all the features of a first issue but lacking the advertisment leaf would, in my opinion, be hypercritical in rejecting their prey on that account.' This copy has some of Trollope's 1st issue points, but not all.
