Third edition of Trollope's final Palliser novel, in which the Duke of Omnium mourns the Duchess and struggles with his children, who like their mother prove to have wills of their own. "No man had ever loved his wife more dearly than he had done; and yet now, in that very excess of tenderness which her death had occasioned, he was driven to accuse her of a great sin against himself." A handsome copy.
