Title: Miss Mackenzie, 1865. 1st Edition
Author: Anthony Trollope
Publisher: Chapman and Hall, London
A first edition of Trollope’s Miss Mackenzie, being the tale of a young women inheriting great wealth following the death in the family. Focusing on social class and society, Trollope produced this work with an intention of a tale without love as a central theme. While it initially had a mixed reaction from readers, the work has now become an excellent example of 19th century class structure, while also being praised for its humor.
