Charles Davis writes "Story from
Sbc.net.au.A long-lost literary treasure has been discovered in the State Library at Launceston.
Tasmanian writer and historian Michael Connor has found a copy of English author Saki's first
novel, Mrs Elmsley, in the Heritage Collection.
Saki is the pen name of Hector Hugh Munro - a famous short story writer who died in World War
Mr Connor searched the world looking for the book and found copies in London and America but he
did not even suspect there might be one in Tasmania.
"Libraries these days, they're throwing a lot of things out and something like this, I mean it's just an ordinary old novel by a guy called Hector Munro," he said."
