Cousin Henry

£90.00

Product description

The story deals with the trouble arising from the indecision of a squire in choosing an heir to his estate. Indefer Jones is the aged squire, between seventy and eighty years of age, of a large manor, Llanfeare, in Carmarthen, Wales. His niece, Isabel Brodrick, has lived with him for years after the remarriage of her father, and endeared herself to everyone. However, according to his strong traditional beliefs, the estate should be bequeathed to a male heir.

His sole male blood relative is his nephew Henry Jones, a London clerk. Henry has, in the past, incurred debts that the squire had paid off, been "sent away from Oxford", and generally made a poor impression on his occasional visits to Llanfeare. Nevertheless, Henry is told of his uncle's intention to make him the heir to the estate and is invited to pay a visit. Isabel rejects her uncle's suggestion that she solve his dilemma by marrying Henry, as she cannot stand her cousin. Indefer Jones finds his nephew to be just as detestable as ever. As a result, he overcomes his prejudice and changes his will one final time, in Isabel's favour. Unfortunately, he dies before he can tell anyone.

Of all Trollope's shorter novels, this one has been called one of his most experimental.

The book is in relatively good condition, considering it's age. The spine has shifted across somewhat, page 16 has separated from it.The inside front pages have some pencil marks and a little fading hear and there. The First Chapter page edging has a few spots of foxing but all others are fine.
