Castle Rackrent
CASTLE RACKRENT, a short novel by Maria Edgeworth published in 1800 , is often regarded as the first historical novel , the first regional novel in English, the first Anglo-Irish novel, the first Big House novel and the first saga novel. It is also widely regarded as the first novel to use the device of a narrator who is both unreliable and an observer of, rather than a player in, the actions he chronicles. Kirkpatrick suggests that it "both borrows from and originates a variety of literary genres and subgenres without neatly fitting into any one of them". William Butler Yeats pronounced Castle Rackrent "one of the most inspired chronicles written in English". Shortly before its publication, an introduction, glossary and footnotes, written in the voice of an English narrator, were added to the original text to blunt the negative impact the Edgeworths feared the book might have on English enthusiasm for the Act of Union 1800

Theodore William Moody
THEODORE WILLIAM MOODY (26 November 1907 – 11 February 1984) was an Irish revisionist historian. Moody was born in Belfast, to a poor family who made their living from dressmaking and iron turning and was educated from 1920-26 at the Belfast Academical Institution. Moody's parents both belonged to the Plymouth Brethren. As a six-year old in 1913, Moody saw the homes of Roman Catholics living down the street go up in flames during a riot against the Home Rule bill, which left him with a lifelong horror of the sectarian hatreds that so often characterized Irish life. At the Royal Belfast Academical Institution , Moody’s strongest subjects were the sciences and Latin, but one of his teachers, Archie Douglas turned his attention to history. At the Queen\'s University Belfast , a professor James Eadie Todd encouraged Moody to pursue graduate studies. In 1930 he went to the Institute of Historical Research in London, and graduated with a PhD in 1934

International Standard Book Number (identifier)
The INTERNATIONAL STANDARD BOOK NUMBER (ISBN) is a unique numeric commercial book identifier. An ISBN is assigned to each edition and variation (except reprintings) of a book. For example, an e-book , a paperback and a hardcover edition of the same book would each have a different ISBN. The ISBN is 13 digits long if assigned on or after 1 January 2007, and 10 digits long if assigned before 2007. The method of assigning an ISBN is nation-based and varies from country to country, often depending on how large the publishing industry is within a country. The initial ISBN configuration of recognition was generated in 1967 based upon the 9-digit STANDARD BOOK NUMBERING (SBN) created in 1966. The 10-digit ISBN format was developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and was published in 1970 as international standard ISO 2108 (the SBN code can be converted to a ten digit ISBN by prefixing it with a zero)
