London: Chapman and Hall, 1866. Original rose cloth, beveled.
First Edition of this collection of pieces such as "The Family that Goes Abroad because it's the thing to do," "The Unprotected Female Tourist," and "Tourists who don't like their Travels." This book was issued as a companion volume to HUNTING SKETCHES, published the year before, and was followed by CLERGYMEN OF THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND later in 1866 (preliminarily titled CLERICAL SKETCHES).
This copy, without the 24 pages of ads present only in some copies, is in fine condition -- no soil or wear at all, the spine with less fading than usual. Though this title is not a Trollope rarity, it is seldom that a 155-year-old volume is encountered in this remarkable condition. Sadleir (TROLLOPE) 23. Provenance: the front paste-down bears the 1928 bookplate of George R.M. Ewing, Jr. by artist Rockwell Kent. Item #14850
