trollope figure2As noted in a recent New Yorker, this is the bicentenary of Anthony Trollope’s birth.

The Princeton University Library owns 554 books by, about, or owned by Trollope, not to mention numerous portrait drawings, paintings, and sculptures. This one moved downstairs recently and so, we took a quick photograph.
