Review:

Shrimpton's edition of he Warden (1855) contextualizes Trollope's critique of a newspaper called the Jupiter by exploring "thundering" Times editorials about the Crimean War. (Matthew Ingleby, The Times Literary Supplement)

From the Back Cover:

This book centres on Mr. Harding, a clergyman of great personal integrity who is nevertheless in possession of an income from a charity far in excess of the sum devoted to the purposes of the foundation. On discovering this, young John Bold turns his reforming zeal to exposing what he regards as an abuse of privilege, despite the fact that he is in love with Mr. Harding's daughter Eleanor.
