Stamp honours Anthony Trollope

On 26 June, 2009, An Post issued a stamp to honour the life and work of Anthony Trollope, a Victorian writer whose nineteenth-century novels continue to have broad appeal today.

The stamp is based on an albumen print of Anthony Trollope (1864) by Julia Margaret Cameron, reproduced courtesy of the National Portrait Gallery, London.

The first day cover features an image of five of Trollope's books with an Irish association - Castle Redmond; The Kellys and the O'Kellys; The Macdermots of Ballycloran; An Eye for an Eye and The Landleaguers.
