This is a fascinating history, based on extraordinary financial records, of Trinity, the richest college in Britain and the college of Newton, of royalty, of thirty-two Nobel laureates, six English prime ministers and many great names in every field from mathematics to poetry.
Having immersed himself in this archive, Robert Neild, a retired economist, traces the ups and downs of the college's income and expenditure, and looks into the persons, the events and the changes in society behind them.
This scholarly book is written so concisely and with such a light touch that it is a delight to read. It will appeal to the general reader, to historians, to financiers and to those interested in university and college finance.
