Orley Farm


TROLLOPE, Anthony Orley Farm

Chapman & Hall, 1862.

First edition. Two volumes. Original purple wavy-grained cloth, the grain running perpendicularly for both volumes, covers blocked with conventional frame design in blind, on spines with farming designs and lettered in gold, pale yellow endpapers. Bound without publisher's catalogue sometimes found at end of vol. I ("cannot … be regarded as essential" - Sadleir); Forty wood-engraved illustrations by J. E. Millais, with first state captions throughout. Spines lightly sunned, a near fine set.

The publishing history of Orley Farm is complicated by the fact that, unusually, the two volumes were published nearly ten months apart, and subsequent reissues of each volume were neither simultaneous nor in step. This set collates textually to Sadleir's first issue (i.e. copies bound form the parts), but has the second volume bound in vertically grained cloth, where Sadleir calls for horizontal. As such the second volume does not conform to any of Sadleir's variants, either Sadleir's priority is in error, or this is an variant binding of the first state. Either way, original printings of this work are now uncommon in such fresh condition.
