Most Significant

(This should be 6 May, but fatigue made Jonathan mistake the day.)

In The New Annotated Dracula (p 49, notes 33 & 34), Leslie S. Klinger wonders why the Count has books on England's botany and geology. Why shouldn't he learn about these things? Is he not allowed to take a general interest?

Van Helsing knew that there were many geologic hazards in Transylvania (The very place...is full of strangeness of the geologic and chemical world. There are deep caverns and fissures that reach none know whither. There have been volcanoes, some of whose openings still send out waters of strange properties, and gases that kill...). It would only be prudent to learn about the geologic hazards of England before buying a home there.
