Rachel Ray A Novel

Trollope, Anthony


Chapman & Hall



2 volumes. 8vo, contemporary polished half calf, marbled sides, red and green morocco labels, gilt lettering and decorations, t.e.g.  Stated second edition, but most likely first edition, second issue.

There were six stated editions of Rachel Ray which Sadleir speculates are all issues of the first edition. Sadleir, Trollope, 17; Wolff 6792; NCBEL III, 883.

“A Trollopian tirade against Evangelical intolerance . . . commissioned by Good Words, but rejected as unfit for Sunday reading. It is one of the few instances in all Trollope's stories where he makes a worker, in this case a brewer, his hero.” - Gerould, A Guide to Trollope (Princeton University Press, 1948).
