Editions of Barsetshire and Palliser Novels

[The novels are arranged in chronological order. I have included the dramatic versions of two of the novels directly after the citation of the available editions. The criteria for selection are textual edition, quality of introduction, notes, and bibliography, and if the original illustrations are included. Each of the Trollope Society editions has been reprinted by the Folio Society. The Folio Society provides piquant 20th century illustrations placed into the text in the manner of the original 19th century illustrations; they also sometimes have a different introductory essay.

There is still no complete scholarly edition of Trollope's novels. I list for the convenience of the reader those editions which are respectable or have some merit (based on a collation of good texts or a good text, having a solid scholarly-critical introduction and notes, containing a reprint of the original illustrations to the novel, having an introductory essay which is of interest for the critical commentary) known to me. I have included a description of the edition if the edition has something which makes it better than the the others on this list. If any reader who comes to this site knows of good editions not cited below, I would be very grateful for information on these, and after checking, would add the citation to the list below.]
