About This Edition

This first edition in ebook form of An Autobiography by Anthony Trollope has three noteworthy features. The Preface, by Trollope’s son, has been moved to the end of the book, after the Autobiography itself. We think it makes more sense there. Secondly, in a few cases, punctuation has been slightly simplified in accordance with present standards. Finally, we have added a subject index and an author index and, with the modern reader in mind, we have included the English translation of the Latin quotations.
