Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. An official who had charge of the rack, in the days when that instrument of torture was used as a punishment or as a means of extorting confession.
“He had faced all this in his mind again and again, but it was a different thing to have the horror within arm's length; old phrases he had heard of the torture rang in his mind -- a boast of Norton's, the rackmaster, who had racked Brian, and which had been repeated from mouth to mouth -- that he had "made Brian a foot longer than God made him"; words of James”
