The Duke's Children 3 Volumes
London: Chapman and Hall, 1880. Hard Cover. FIRST EDITION. Three volumes in the original cloth. This book was never reprinted in its original triple decker form (Sadleir). It is the last book of Trollope’s wonderful Palliser series. The six volumes of the series follow the lives of Plantagenet Palliser, later the Duke of Omnium, and his wife, Lady Glencora. She is one of Trollope’s most memorable characters, full of life and personality. The book is bound in dark blue-green cloth with block design on front cover, and spine with gilt title, author, and publisher. The bindings are in very good condition with slight bumping to boards and spine edges. The bookplate of the noted book collector and Grolier Club member, Charles Auchincloss, is affixed to the front pastedown of each volume. The bookplates cover some light pencil markings. The interior pages are quite clean with the usual aging to the page margins. In Volume I the front hinge is cracked, although the binding is otherwise tight. Volumes II and III are tender but holding. Volume I: 320 pages; Volume II: 327 pages; Volume III: 312 pages plus 24 pages of ads. LIT/052109 This set may require an extra shipping fee. Very Good.
