Trollope completed the manuscript for his Autobiography in 1879 and bequeathed it to his son Henry M. Trollope, who then edited and published it in 1883 after his father's death. His Autobiography remains "the principal source of information respecting Trollope's life" (DNB). Sadleir, 316. Bookplate of carpet magnate John Stewart Templeton, with his penciled annotations on page 146 of Volume II describing playing whist with Trollope while sailing from Europe to North America in 1868.
