Weyman, Stanley J.: The Castle Inn (illus). v1. 26 Aug 2017

The Castle Inn By Stanley J. Weyman (1855–1928)
Illustrated by Walter Appleton Clark (1876–1906)
Frontispiece by Arthur Rackham (1867–1939)

This book was first published in 1898. Text is in the public domain in countries where copyright is “Life + 90” or less, and in the USA. Illustrations by Walter Clark are in the public domain world-wide. Frontispiece by Arthur Rackham is in the public domain in countries where copyright is “Life + 70” or less, and in the USA.

----------------
This swords-and-pistols swashbuckling romance carries us into jolly old England in 1767, when George III was young, when gibbets still served for sign-posts, when travel was by coach and highwaymen were many, when men drank deep and played high, and duels were still the order of the day. The adventure is complete with a high-born Handsome Hero, a spirited Beautiful Heroine, several Dastardly Villains, and assorted Meddlers and Troublemakers who step through an intricate quadrille involving bequests, betrothals, treachery, and love. Frequent sparks of wit lighten the drama. “The Castle Inn” is among the most thrilling of Weyman’s thrilling tales.

----------------
OCR errors were corrected; punctuation, diacritics, and italics formatted; High-ish resolution images, based on 960 x 1280 px, manually cleaned and enhanced. (Includes a copy of the un-enhanced cover) Embedded fonts for titling and drop-caps. Chapter heads are cross-linked to Table of Contents; List of Illustrations provides links to images.

Enjoy the read. Adventure awaits!

Thank you! This is another beautifully assembled book! I especially like your font choices.

I was wondering whether you read primarily on a colur device (like a tablet) or a gray scale device (like an ereader), because I find the green portion of the cover is so dark that it is very hard to see on my ereaders. I am guessing you punched up the contrast so that the title and author would stand out.

Why, thank you so much for the very kind words.

Yup, I do work with color these days. I tested the grayscale, but I guess my monitor must be set too bright.

So I have uploaded another version with the cover brightened up a bit, hope this one works better.

Cheers,
