The Real ‘Clara Millard’!

Thanks to some really amazing detective work by Laurence Worms, of Ash Rare Books, for unmasking the real ‘Clara Millard’ (see our entry on ‘Clara Millard’ in the blog post on the Antique Dealer project blog).  It seems that Millard was in fact Georgetta Elizabeth Dance (1862-1926), the ‘most successful book-huntress in the world’ it’s quite a story, so do read Laurence’s blog post on ‘The Book Hunter on Safari’.

Thanks too to Heidi Egginton for re-tweeting this in her Twitter feed too!
