Rare Edgeworth Images and Maria’s Work

Seal of Maria Edgeworth

Being involved with the lives and times of the Edgeworth family has often meant finding new things of interest about them. My first Blog post in a long time and I have two new items to share. The first of these is a collection of drawings by the Edgeworth family. A rare book that shows glimpses of family life and the lives around them. It comes from the Rare Books & Special Collections, Hesburgh Libraries, University of Notre Dame. A digital copy of these drawings will soon be on display at the center.

The second item is another Blog link – Irish Author Maria Edgeworth and her Life Work This post takes a look at a couple of Maria’s more famous novels Castle Rackrent and Belinda. Follow the link to read more.
