Trollope : a biography by N. John Hall( Book )
10 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in English and held by 1,464 libraries worldwide
Trollope was in his thirties before his first novel was published; before his death at sixty-seven he had written nearly seventy books, as well as conducting a quite separate career in the Post Office. This authoritative and highly readable biography, by the editor of Trollope's Letters, draws a masterly portrait of an engaging, contradictory, extraordinary man and writer. N. John Hall writes with an unparalleled knowledge of his subject, vividly and with humor -- as alive to Trollope's shortcomings as to his startling powers. He shows us that, productive as he was, Trollope was also a writer of care and judgment, and more of an intellect than is often recognized. In this biography, Hall interweaves the public and social career -- as civil servant, traveller, fanatic rider to hounds -- with that of the writer, drawing on the works themselves as well as all relevant historical evidence. Above all, he never loses sight of the mystery and subtlety of Trollope's personality: the comic and creative genius of the man who arguably left behind him more good novels than any other writer in the language. - Jacket flap

Max Beerbohm : a kind of a life by N. John Hall( Book )
6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 559 libraries worldwide
Max Beerbohm was widely celebrated as the wittiest mind of his age. He became famous in the mid-1890s and remained so until his death in 1956. His wit manifested itself in both prose and caricature, and his writings and drawings are keenly interesting. Max's life, however, was relatively uneventful, and of interest, he said, only to himself. John Hall moves quickly through Max's history: schoolboy; college undergraduate; London caricaturist, journalist, and critic; Edwardian social butterfly; married man and self-exile to Italy in 1910, where he produced numerous books, essays, and caricatures; and, from 1935 to 1956, occasional BBC radio broadcaster. Hall notes that although all Max's work during his fifteen early years on the London scene concerned contemporary art and life, after his "retirement" in 1910 his writings and drawings harkened back to the late-Victorian/Edwardian era and even to the Pre-Raphaelites; he became, he said, an "interesting link with the past." This book, like Beerbohm's work, highlights his connection with various eminences over three eras: Algernon Swinburne, J.A.M. Whistler, Oscar Wilde, Henry James, George Bernard Shaw, Lytton Strachey, Virginia Woolf, and many others

This delightful book is an anthology of Beerbohm's best images, accompanied by historical and analytical commentary by John Hall that is enriched by liberal quotation from Beerbohm's own witty essays, criticism, letters and fiction. The 213 caricatures reproduced here are arranged in chapters by category: writers, including Wilde, Kipling, James, Conrad, Yeats, Twain, Wells, Hardy, Strachey, Forster, and Pound; theatre people, including Ibsen, Shaw, and Barrie; artists, including Whistler, Sargent, and Fry; politicians, including Disraeli, Theodore Roosevelt, Wilson, and Churchill; royalty, especially King Edward VII (Beerbohm's favourite subject), but also Queen Victoria, George V, and Edward VIII; and miscellaneous contemporaries, including Caruso, Sousa, and financier Alfred De Rothschild. Also reproduced are generous selections from Beerbohm's two books of caricatures dealing with the past: Dante, Burns, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Tennyson, and Browning from The Poet's Corner; and Rossetti, Swinburne, Ruskin, Morris and others from Rossetti and His Circle. The final chapter is devoted to self-portraits

Doctor Thorne by Anthony Trollope( Book )

Mary Thorne, orphaned (and illegitimate) niece of Dr. Thorne, has long been a favorite at Greshamsbury House--until Lady Arabella Gresham learns that her only son Frank is in love with Mary. The unhappy Mary is banished forthwith, because the Gresham family fortunes are so depleted that Frank must marry money. Frank, however, is one of the few completely honorable young men in Trollope's novels and remains stubbornly true to his love. Well, he does propose to another woman, at the insistence of his mother, but only with the virtual certainty that he will be rejected--as indeed he is. The lady is Miss Dunstable, one of Trollope's most delightful characters, a fabulously wealthy thirtyish heiress of an ointment company. She is a bold, witty woman, not beautiful, but attractive in her way, whose wealth invites countless proposals. After the rather complicated plot unfolds, the tables are completely turned, and Mary is eagerly welcomed by Lady Arabella (who, of course, has always loved her) as the savior of the family. - Open Library
