Barchester Pilgrimage

£24.99

Product description

Written as a sequel to Trollope's "Chronicles of Barsetshire", and written in Trollope's style, this book follows the fortunes of the children and grandchildren of Trollope's characters up to the time of writing, with some gentle satire on the social, political and religious changes of the 20th century.

Ronald Arbuthnott Knox (1888–1957) was an English priest, theologian and author of detective stories. He also wrote and broadcast for BBC Radio. After Eton and Balliol College, Oxford he was ordained an Anglican priest (1912) and appointed chaplain of Trinity College, Oxford. However, this appointment ended in 1917 when he was received into the Roman Catholic Church and then ordained a Catholic priest (1918). Knox wrote many books (essays and novels) and re-translated the Latin Vulgate Bible into English, using Hebrew and Greek sources, beginning the work in 1936. One of his BBC broadcasts (1926) imagined a revolution in London - so dramatically that it may have inspired Orson Welles' 'War of the Worlds'. His niece was Penelope Fitzgerald.

Our book is in good condition, having been protected by its dustwrapper (itself in a clear plastic/paper archival outer cover). The dust jacket is unclipped, and in very good condition apart from an area of loss at the top of the spine. The book itself is bound in light red cloth with the title etc in gilt lettering on the spine. There are few signs of wear to the exterior (minor shelf wear at top & bottom of spine, one tiny black mark on back cover, and an even smaller one at the top of the spine). Inside, the front fep has several ink-written names etc, the binding is tight, all pages clean and bright, and the book appears almost unused.
