FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL MONTHLY PARTS, THE FIRST OF TROLLOPE'S NOVELS TO APPEAR IN PARTS. Publisher's catalogs dated Apr 1862 in part 16 and Sept 1862 in part 20 as called for in Sadleir, other advertisements at rear in all parts but not generally conforming to Sadleir except in the presence of ads for De Jongh's cod liver oil and for perfumeries on colored paper. "Orley Farm Advertiser" lacking or partially lacking except in parts 9 & 12.
Trollope commented on this, his first attempt at serialized writing: "The plot is probably the best I have ever made; but it has the fault of declaring itself, and thus coming to an end too early in the book ... I do not know that there is a dull page in the book. I am fond of Orley Farm--and especially fond of its illustrations by Millais, which are the best I have seen in any novel in any language" (Trollope, An Autobiography, 1883). The parts issue rare at auction; ABPC lists 9 copies since 1977. Sadleir 13.
