Barchester Towers, published in 1857 by Anthony Trollope, is the second novel in his series known as the "Chronicles of Barsetshire". Among other things it satirises the antipathy in the Church of England between High Church and Evangelical adherents. Trollope began writing this book in 1855

The Eustace diamonds by Anthony Trollope( Book )

383 editions published between 1850 and 2020 in 5 languages and held by 7,250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anthony Trollope's celebrated Parliamentary novels, of which The Eustace Diamonds (1873) is the third and most famous, are at once unfailingly amusing social comedies, melodramas of greed and deception, and precise nature studies of the political animal in its mid-Victorian habitat. With its purloined jewels, its conniving, resilient, mercenary heroine, and its partiality for the human spectacle in all its complexity, The Eustace Diamonds is a splendid example of Trollope's art at its most assured
Can you forgive her? by Anthony Trollope( Book )

293 editions published between 1864 and 2020 in 3 languages and held by 5,848 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

CAN YOU FORGIVE HER? is the first of the six Palliser novels. In this volume Trollope examines parliamentary election and marriage, politics and privacy. He dissects the Victorian upper class. Issues and people shed their pretenses under his patient, ironic probe. But it is on women and their predicament that Trollope particularly focuses. "What should a woman do with her life?" asks Alice Vavasor. And each woman, being different and unique, has her own answer, from the uncomfortably married Lady Glencora to the coquettish Mrs. Greenow, to Alice's clear-headed cousin Kate
Framley Parsonage by Anthony Trollope( Book )

341 editions published between 1860 and 2021 in English and Undetermined and held by 5,708 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Trollope’s panoramic, six volume portrayal of the professional and landed classes of Victorian England, the Barsetshire Novels, are as a group one of the great works of 19th-century English fiction. These novels – the first serial fiction in English literature – follow the intrigues of ambition and love in the cathedral town of Barsetshire. Framley Parsonage, the fourth of the novels, was immediately popular when it appeared in 1860. It made Trollope’s name and gained him the large reading public which he was never to lose. The main figure in the novel is Mark Robarts, a young clergyman, who offends his patroness (Lady Lufton) and other upholders of tradition by allowing himself to be influenced by the disreputable Duke of Omnium and the unscrupulous Mr. Sowerby. The situation is all the more unfortunate as Lord Lufton, the son of Lady Lufton, wishes to marry Mark’s sister Lucy. Trollope’s characters are portrayed with great subtlety showing how the old values of the Barsetshire community were being undermined by the new 'fast set'."--Publisher

And the only birthright of Mary Thorne, the beloved niece of the village's respected doctor, is the stigma of illegitimacy

The Duke's children by Anthony Trollope( Book )

199 editions published between 1800 and 2020 in 3 languages and held by 3,535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'No-one probably, ever felt himself to be more alone in the world than our old friend, the Duke of Omnium, when the Duchess died.' Her death leaves to the Duke the care of his three wilful children and to the children the continuing social education of their father. The eldest, Lord Silverbridge, has been sent down from Oxford; Lord Gerald Palliser is doing indifferently well at Cambridge; and Lady Mary Palliser, the only daughter, is set on what seems to her father an unsuitable marriage. While the Duke must learn to accept that 'nothing will ever be quite what it used to be', his heir must acquire, his father hopes, a respect for justice, self-sacrifice, and honour, and a suitable wife. The rival claims of Lady Mabel Grex and Isabel Boncassen, the American granddaughter of a dock-worker, are emblematic of the claims on the Palliser family: tradition against progress, duty against natural feelings. The Duke's Children is the sixth and last of the Palliser novels (1864-80), which together provide an exceptionally rich expose of the British way of life during its most prestigious period. - Publisher
Ayala's angel by Anthony Trollope( )

107 editions published between 1881 and 2021 in 3 languages and held by 3,293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The last chronicle of Barset by Anthony Trollope( Book )

287 editions published between 1867 and 2021 in 3 languages and held by 3,126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Last Chronicle of Barset is the grand finale to the Barsetshire series of novels, Trollope's magnificnet portrayal of the professional and landed classes of Victorian England. The plot focuses on Mr. Crawley, the fanatically proud curate of Hogglestock already known to readers of Framley Parsonage. Accused of theft and persecuted by the domineering Mr. Proudie and her self-righteous followers, he is perhaps Trollope's only character conceived on a heroic scale, and his sufferings reach a tragic intensity. Other familiar characters on the Barsetshire landscape include Mr. Harding, whose old age is movingly described; Grace Crawley, who becomes romantically involved with Major Grantly; and Johnny Eames, who continues his pursuit of Lily Dale but becomes entangled in a dangerous flirtation with the intriguing Madalina Demolines. Lady Lufton, Mr. Robarts, the Greshams, and the Thornes also reappear to play their final part in the Barsetshire drama. - Back cover
An eye for an eye by Anthony Trollope( )

127 editions published between 1800 and 2020 in English and held by 3,048 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fred Neville, a young officer in the Hussars, is heir to an earldom, but before taking up his responsibilities resolves to enjoy a year of adventure in Ireland where his regiment is posted. When Fred falls in love and seduces an Irish girl of great beauty and mysterious background, the scene is set for a tragic outcome that far exceeds the adventures Fred had in mind. Written in 1870 but not published until 1879, An Eye For An Eye is arguably the most melodramatic story that Trollope wrote and certainly his frankest and most daring treatment of premarital sex
Mr. Scarborough's family by Anthony Trollope( )

106 editions published between 1882 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 2,927 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mr. Scarborough's Family", the finest of [Trollope's] legal novels, is dominated by the heroic John Scarborough, a wealthy squire who, with almost superhuman energy, contrives from his deathbed to defeat the hated law of entail. Seeking to bequeath his estate to the worthier of his two sons, in his pursuit of justice he subjects them to a testing examination, baffles the lawyers, and scandalizes society. The social world also comes under Trollope's ironic gaze. His searching treatment of the various codes governing courtship and marriage, money-lending, gambling, and even fox-hunting, reveals compellingly the frustration of youth and the sadness of age. -- Cover, page [4]

The prime minister by Anthony Trollope( Book )

212 editions published between 1876 and 2020 in 3 languages and held by 2,886 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Can a morally scrupulous English gentleman make an effective Prime Minister? This is one of the enduringly fascinating problems posed in The Prime Minister (1876). And as Plantaganet Palliser, Duke of Omnium, overenthusiastically supported by Lady Glencora, presides over the Coalition government, Trollope reaches into the highest echelons of the English establishment, depicting political realities rather than ideology, portraying social, sexual and domestic politics as well as the public variety. The world of the novel is perplexed and dominated by the handsome impostor Ferdinand Lopez. Even the Duke and Duchess are not immune to his malign influence, as Lopez pursues Emily Wharton for her charm and her fortune, and plots to win membership of that most exclusive of English clubs, the Houses of Parliament." --

At the same time, Trollope's srupulous accuracy in recording prices, earnings, dates, and topography creates a disturbing pictue of the lives of the labouring Irish poor both before and during the famine." -- Cover, page [4]
Hunting sketches by Anthony Trollope( )

58 editions published between 1865 and 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hunting Sketches by Anthony Trollope is a collection of eight short texts that center around the subject of hunting.

As a group they provide us with the most extensive and telling exposé of British life during the period of its greatest prestige
