It was with high hopes that I carefully opened each box, but I was disappointed however, because save a musty smell and the promise of some untold secret, none of the Box Books held anything. Of course in due course, I examined them thoroughly to see if their forme held something other than the physical, such as an enchantment or secret code disguised within the fabric of the books themselves. You will not be surprised to learn that I found nothing. Periodically I scrutinise the books to see if some minuscule clue has escaped my previous endeavours, but none is ever forthcomming. Until I find something and I am able to report my findings to you, I have had Collinworth draw up some plans so that you can make your very own Secret Box Book. The plans are those of one of the larger books that I believe will hold objects as broad and as tall as a sheet of office printer paper. The project also contains printable labels suitable for decorating the book when you have made it, and as usual, for your convenience, both A4 and United States Letter formats are accommodated.
As long as I can remember, I knew that our library contained a handful of such interesting faux books, however, finding them proved very difficult. The Barons' library holds some ten thousand books so, given that the Secret Box Books were originally designed as they were to avoid detection, over a number of years they remained hidden to even my most concerted searches. It was only when I was 21 years old and my father passed the library papers to me, that the location of our six Secret Box Books was revealed to me. Like a child I ran to the library and had Collinworth pull out each of the volumes.
