Post Trollope, Anthony: The Chronicles of Barsetshire. v6. 16 Dec 2010

An omnibus edition of the complete "Chronicles of Barsetshire", written by the English author Anthony Trollope between 1855 and 1867. The omnibus contains the following books:

The Warden

The tranquil atmosphere of the cathedral town of Barchester is shattered when a scandal breaks concerning the financial affairs of a Church-run almshouse for elderly men. In the ensuing furore, Septimus Harding, the almshouse's well-meaning warden, finds himself pitted against his daughter's suitor, John Bold, a zealous local reformer. Matters are not improved when Harding's abrasive son-in-law, Archdeacon Grantly, leaps into the fray to defend him against a campaign Bold begins in the national press.

Barchester Towers

After the death of the bishop of Barchester, a bitter struggle begins over who will succeed him, and resentment and suspicion threaten to cause deep divisions within the diocese. Trollope's masterly depiction of the plotting and back-stabbing that ensue lies at the heart of one of the most vivid and comic of his Barchester novels.

Doctor Thorne

Son of a bankrupt land-owner, Frank Gresham is intent on marrying his beloved Mary Thorne, despite her illigitimacy and apparent poverty. Frank's ambitious mother and haughty aunt are set against the match, however, and push him to save the family estate by making a good marriage to a wealthy heiress. A telling examination of the relationship between society, money, and morality.

Framley Parsonage

Mark Robarts is a clergyman with ambitions beyond his small country parish. In a naive attempt to mix in influential circles, he agrees to guarantee a bill for a large sum of money for his disreputable local Member of Parliament, but the unscrupulous politician reneges on his financial obligations, and Mark must face the consequences.

The Small House at Allington

Engaged to the ambitious and self-serving Adolphus Crosbie, Lily Dale is devastated when he jilts her for the aristocratic Lady Alexandrina. Although crushed by his faithlessness, Lily still believes herself bound to her former fiancee and therefore condemned to remain single, so that when a more deserving suitor arrives, she is unable to see past her feelings for Crosbie.

The Last Chronicle of Barset

When Reverend Josiah Crawley uses a large cheque to pay his debts, he is accused of theft. Shamed before the entire community, his world begins to crumble and he even questions his own sanity. A devastatingly realistic portrait of a man's anguished nightmare of self-doubt, and the effects of poverty.


EDIT: 31 Oct 2009

Thoroughly proof-read "The Warden" against the Penguin Classics edition. Uploaded v2.

EDIT: 22 Nov 2009

Thoroughly proof-read "Barchester Towers" against the Penguin Classics edition. Uploaded v3.

EDIT: 10 Jan 2010

Proof-read "Doctor Thorne" against the Penguin Classics edition. Lots of errors in this one, including a couple of missing lines and paragraphs. Uploaded v4.

EDIT: 7 Feb 2010

Proof-read "Framley Parsonage" against the Penguin Classics edition. Fixed a significant number of errors, and restored the much shorter paragraphs of the original Cornhill Magazine version of the text, which Trollope much preferred to the longer amalgamated paragraphs used in the subsequent novelisation. Uploaded v5.

EDIT: 16 Dec 2010

Thoroughly proofed both "The Small House at Allington" and "The Last Chronicle of Barset" against their respective "Penguin Classics" editions. Renamed the book from "The Barchester Chronicles" to "The Chronicles of Barsetshire" to reflect the conventional naming of the series. I would now regard this book as "complete"; if you find any remaining errors, please let me know. Uploaded v6.

Thanks, Harry. I've just downloaded both the prc version and the ePub version with the idea of comparing them when my ECO reader arrives.

The ePub version is much smaller than the prc version (2.3Mb as against 4.04MB); why is that?

Can I ask if I may, did you build the prc version with Mobipocket creator? And convert it to the ePub version with Calibre?

Regards, Alex

A combination of better compression (ePub files are really ZIP files, remember) and "cleaner" code in the ePub. Mobi uses "in-line" attributes for everything; ePub uses an external CSS file.

Yes, that's exactly what I did.

Many thanks (yet again), Harry for helping me catch up on re-reading classics. I've just downloaded this collection for a longish hospital stint starting tomorrow. It'll help take the pain away. Best wishes and thanks again for your generosity. Neil

Wow, thanks, Harry, that's great.
Any chance there'll be some sub-chapters in each of the books in the future, instead of each chapter being a whole book?
