CASTLE RACKRENT

by Maria Edgeworth

With an Introduction by Anne Thackeray Ritchie

[Note: The body of this novel contains a lot of footnotes and many references to the Glossary at the end. The footnotes (which are sometimes quite long) have been inserted in square brackets near to the point where they were referred to by suffix in the original text. The entries in the Glossary have been numbered, instead of being listed with a page number as they were in the printed book; they are also referenced with a note in square brackets near the point where there was a suffix in the original.

Italics have been replaced by capitals.

The pound sterling symbol has been replaced by 'L'.

This text and the Introduction were taken from an edition published by Macmillan and Co. in 1895.]
