Thomas Adolphus Trollope (1810-1892), historian and writer, was born into a literary family. His mother Frances was a travel writer and his brother Anthony the renowned novelist. Thomas led an eventful life, partly due to his family's precarious financial situation. His father was forced to flee to Bruges in 1834 to escape the debtor's prison and after her husband's death Fanny had to support her dependent children through her writing. She was aided by Thomas, who became her literary agent whilst pursuing his own writing. They moved to Italy in 1843 where Thomas published books concerning Italian history and entertained guests including George Eliot. His three-volume memoir, published after the death of his mother and his first wife Theodosia, contains an intimate account of his life. Volume 3 covers Trollope's observations on Italian political life and his marriage to his second wife Frances Ternan

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Memoiren eines Hochstaplers/ Ein Hochstapler par excellence Liebesabenteuer, Glücksspiele aller Art, wagemutige Duelle, glanzvolle Maskenbälle, Zechgelage und Hetzjagden machen das Leben von Redmond Barry aus, der sich später Barry Lyndon nennt und vor aller Welt seine aristokratische Herkunft rühmt. Sogar die Hand einer vermögenden Gräfin-Witwe vermag er zu gewinnen. Im Londoner Schuldgefängnis schreibt er schliesslich seine Memoiren. Die wechselvolle Lebensgeschichte eines Abenteurers und Hochstaplers aus dem 18. Jahrhundert. William Makepeace Thackeray wurde 1811 in Kalkutta als Sohn eines Beamten der Ostindien-Kompanie geboren und in englischen Internatsschulen erzogen. Sein Studium der Mathematik in Cambridge brach er ab und reiste nach Frankreich, Holland und Deutschland, wo er 1830 Goethe seine Aufwartung machte. 1833 ging er nach Paris und studierte Malerei, was ihn befähigte, viele seiner späteren literarischen Werke selbst zu illustrieren. Nach London zurückgekehrt, betätigte er sich als Anwalt, Journalist und Verleger. Seine literarische Laufbahn begann er mit Kritiken und parodistischen Beiträgen für führende englische Zeitungen und Magazine. Thackeray gilt nach Charles Dickens als der bedeutendste englische Romancier des viktorianischen Zeitalters. Weitere Werke: Barry Lyndon (1844), Das Snobbuch (1848) Die Geschichte des Pendennis (1850), Die Memoiren des Mr. C.J. Yellowpush (1852), Die Geschichte des Henry Esmond (1852), Die Newcomes (1853/1855), Die Virginier (1857/ 1859); Die Abenteuer des Philip(1861/ 1862)
