"A General History of Rome" by Charles Merivale [Longmans, Green & Co, 1875]. Second Edition. Polished calf with marbled edges/papers, five raised bands on the spine, and gilt adornments. With inscription “Charles Henry Bathurst Trollope, From His Uncle. Christmas 1890” on rear side of FFEP. Trollope shows up in The Peerage and is a distant relation to the famed author Anthony Trollope; they shared a great-great-grandfather, the 3rd Baronet of Casewick. The uncle who wrote the inscription was most likely John Joseph Trollope as his other two uncles had already passed by 1890. With five fold-out maps in color, all fully intact. Some spotting noted throughout the text but no writing. Hinges are tight and there are no loose pages. Slight rubbing to head of spine and edges. Overall, Very Good+ and with interesting providence.
