Library notes
A portion of the books included in Corbin's library, most likely those of a classical/historical bent, probably came from Hannah's father Thomas Lee's library at Stratford, her childhood home. The medical texts, or at least a large majority of them, probably were those of Dr. Richard Lingan Hall, with whom Corbin lived for many years.
