How the "Mastiffs" Went to Iceland [IN DISCUSSIONS WITH A BOOKSELLER IN CHELSEA]

£480.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

The renewed interest in the works of Anthony Trollope will surely include those non-fiction travel writings which he produced fairly regularly throughout his life. This journey was, unusually, to Iceland, and tells of a journey made in the summer of 1878. As the book was published in the same year, it was clearly a work which did not require the author to spend much time on its creation. The text is written in an easy, conversational style, and enhanced with many line drawings by Mrs Hugh Blackburn and 2 sepia photographs.

Anthony Trollope (1815–1882) was an English novelist of the Victorian era, best-known for the "Chronicles of Barsetshire", but also the author of many other novels dealing with political, social, & gender issues, 2 plays, short stories, and a number of travel books. His literary reputation declined during the last years of his life, but he had regained the esteem of critics by the mid-20th century.

Our copy of this book is in good condition, bound in royal blue fine cloth with bevelled edges; gilt decoration and lettering on the front cover; title etc in gilt on the spine. Back cover has an impressed border matching the gilt on the front. Corners are lightly bumped, and there is some shelf wear to top & bottom of the spine, but no frank damage to the exterior. All page edges gilt. No dust jacket (presumably as issued). Previous owner's name and gift inscription ink-written on a neat label (rather messily pasted on at the contemporary time of giving) on front fep. There is some foxing (mainly on earlier pages, or (more heavily) on the plain pages dividing the illustrations), but the text is generally unmarked. Binding is tight, and both pasted photographs retain their tissue guards.
