Forster came back to live at King's after his mother died, in 1947. He brought with him a glass fronted bookcase designed by his father, half of it can be seen to the right of the photograph. This bookcase is now full of Persephone books and would be used at 59 Lamb's Conduit Street if there was room for it. One day it will return to Forster's rooms at Kings, which it should never have left (it was sold after his death which is how we acquired it).
