Is He Popenjoy by Anthony Trollope (2 Volumes)


Hardcover. Conditon: Good+, Very Good+.1944. Humphrey Milford - Oxford Press (World Classics Series)

The year 1874 saw the conclusion in London of a much publicized court case involving an unlikely pretender to an English baronetcy. Trollope responded to the public's interest in scandal with this novel, which traces the claim of a shadowy figure to the marquisate of Brotherton. The novel is full of sensational elements and is highly revealing of the social issues of the mid-1870s
