Literary responses Anna Eliza Bray
The novel's treatment of religious tension at a time when the English public was debating Catholic Emancipation proved extremely scandalous. As a result, AEB became the target of much anger.

Timeline

3 June 1829
Publisher Henry Colburn went into partnership with Richard Bentley (1794 - ­1871) (who, in order to do this, had just dissolved the partnership between himself and his brother Samuel Bentley as printers).
1 September 1832
The two-year-old firm of Colburn and Bentley was dissolved when Bentley bought Colburn out, amid considerable ill-feeling apparently caused by Colburn's shady financial practices.
