The Case of the Lost Library Ticket

27 May 2010

When “Dracula” author, Bram Stoker writes the words “I have not seen my [library] ticket for at least twenty years” I imagine a deathly pale piece of paper trembling in an old trunk,  one of its corners roughly torn… and if I were the principal librarian of the British Library in the year 1905, I too would have issued the man a replacement without delay.

See Bram Stoker’s request for a replacement library ticket and Arthur Conan Doyle’s request to join the British Library.
