Rosemary Sutcliff, historical novelist used the London Library for research of The Eagle of the Ninth

The Eagle of the Ninth is but one example of how historical novelist Rosemary Sutcliff researched all her work very carefully. As well as drawing on her own library of books (see below), she used to have books sent to her on loan from the wonderful, private, London Library. I suspect she would have been supportive of the Save our Libraries campaigning.
