The Duke’s Children “Only Complete Edition” Published

TheDukesChildrenEveryman’s Library has set April 4, 2017 as the publication date for their edition of Anthony Trollope’s The Duke’s Children: The Only Complete Edition. This low-cost hardcover edition provides the restored text of the last of Trollope’s Palliser novels as it was published in The Folio Society’s 2015 collectible edition.

Trollope wrote The Duke’s Children, his final Palliser novel, as a four-volume work but was required by his publisher to reduce it to three, necessitating the loss of nearly sixty-five thousand words. A team of researchers led by Steven Amarnick has worked with the manuscript at Yale’s Beinecke Library to restore the novel to its original form. The result is richer and more complex, with a subtly different ending: a clearly superior book to the one that has always been published.

Amazon is presently offering pre-orders of the book for $21.24, a savings off the regular list price of $27.50. Your purchase using the link below benefits The Trollope Society (USA).
