These three volumes are not a uniform set, but combined form the long narrative telling the story line of this trilogy, as it were. As an antiquarian set, they are very difficult to find to combine and make a Marshmallows set! You will likely not find another antiquarian set of these Victorian titles, in this condition!

Annals of a Quiet Neighborhood, A. Strahan, London, 1868.
Generally a very sound volume, plain boards front and back, bright gilt on spine, a very nice copy! MacDonald was forty-three, at the height of his writing powers and career during this time period. Annals is volume 1 of the Marshmallows Trilogy, his fictional city and saga of English life, in the pastorate. It was not uncommon at this stage of his writing for MacDonald to have several volumes at various stages of creation, including poetry, sermons, adult fiction, or children's stories. A few years prior to his American Tour, he was a literary rock star in London, shaking and shaping people's hearts and minds! Copies in this condition are scarce! 

The Seaboard Parish, Routledge, NY 1872. Generally good to very good condition, a sound volume, hinges are starting, slight issues here and there. Volume 2 of the Marshmallows Trilogy, pairing with Annals and Vicar"s Daughter. 

The Vicar's Daughter, Robert's Bros, Boston, 1879. Generally good to very good condition, a sound volume, ex-library with the usual treatments and issues. Volume 3 of the Marshmallows Trilogy, pairing with Annals and The Seaboard Parish.
