Editions of the Novellas or One-Volume Novels

[I list the fictions in chronological order, cited with their number in Trollope's oeuvre and the year Trollope wrote them, followed in parenthesis by the year of publication as a book. I place the best edition first. Criteria for 'best' include returning to the original text, a scholarly introduction and notes, indications of the novel's original divisions, and finally inclusion of original illustrations and matter relevant to contemporary issues in the form of appendices.

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.]
