Viscount Wesley Disward was a famous bibliomaniac. He was Hugh’s grandfather and former guardian of the Dantalian’s Bookshelf. He’s mentioned many times throughout the series. Alive, he's only featured in Gastronomy Worship. He's more explored in the manga. In this adaptation, his name is spelled as Weasley.

Background[]

The Diswards are failed aristocrats known as terrible bibliomaniacs. Wesley was the most successful bibliomaniac in the country. It’s said that he sold half of his possessions for a single book. He collected tens of thousands of books. His passion for books attracted other bibliomaniacs who befriended him, such as the Marquess of Asquith, but also bibliomaniacs who envied him, such as Henry Conrad. Wesley acquired the “heaven in the pot” and became the guardian of the Dantalian’s Bookshelf. He built a secret basement beneath his mansion to hide the library.[1][2] He kept some Phantom Books in his private collection instead of sealing them inside the Dantalian’s Bookshelf.[3]

Wesley had vast knowledge about books, including Phantom Books. Wesley taught his grandson Hugh about Phantom Books and the Dantalian’s Bookshelf.[1][2] Wesley was consulted by the police in cases related to Phantom Books.[4] People used to borrow or steal Phantom Books from him.[3][5] People sent letters to him, asking for his help, when they were troubled by Phantom Books, or when they wished to have him appraise their books. The letters continue to be sent, even after his death.[6][7] Wesley was involved in many mysterious incidents related to forbidden knowledge, cases that even the Scotland Yard couldn’t figure out.[1] Kamilla’s father is a long friend of the Diswards, and Wesley was a frequent client of his.[8]

Wesley was known nationwide as a bibliomaniac. He used to buy entire bookshelves at once.[8] He donated over 100,000 books to the Cadfael School.[9] Some knew him as the guardian of the Dantalian’s Bookshelf, especially those involved in political secrets.[10] Wesley used to say “there are things in the world that shouldn’t be known”. The sentence is also repeated by Hugh’s father and Dalian.[1][2] Wesley bought The Queen of the Night for a large sum of money. For years he tended the rare plant, which has a flower shaped like a book. After Wesley’s death, Dalian became responsible for watering it.[11]

Wesley obtained The Harlequinade in an auction. Half a month before the events of Turn-Up Book, the envious Henry Conrad pretended to be a common thief, entered Wesley’s house and killed him, everything to steal the old book. Although there were rumors blaming Conrad, the police found no evidence to prosecute him. Hugh received a letter, part of Wesley’s will, saying that he can have the Disward estate, including the books inside it, with the condition that he takes over the Dantalian’s Bookshelf and takes care of Dalian. Hugh replaced his grandfather as key-keeper of the library.[1] Hugh and Dalian often travel to retrieve the Phantom Books borrowed by Wesley. Hugh reads Wesley’s diary to learn which Phantom Books must be sealed before they go out of control.[10] Hugh’s revolver is a memento of Wesley. Dalian is often referred as a friend of Wesley or a girl adopted by him.[1][8]

In the manga, Wesley prepared a train schedule for Dalian, so that she can find him even after his death by traveling in time using the Timetable.[12] In this adaptation, the Professor insinuates that he was involved in Wesley’s death.[13]

Disward estate[]

Disward estate

The Disward estate.

Located in wilderness, on the outskirts of an academic town, it takes half a day to travel from the capital to the stone mansion by train or car. Although the land is large, the house itself is far from majestic. It’s a dilapidated old house, far from civilization, with a courtyard where grass and bright flowers grow in abundance and disarrange. A stone garden path connects the gate to the oak front door. The place is empty, with no servants.[1] Hugh and Kamilla discovered all the secret entrances during their childhood.[14] Hugh’s father and mother also used to play in the Disward estate in their childhood.[2]

The interior has no decorations like paintings and sculptures, nothing of value, only the most essential furniture, such as a leather sofa and dining table. In the tower overlooking the garden, behind a bookshelf of a small room, there’s a secret passage, with a narrow staircase leading deep under the mansion. Half of the damp, dimly lit, spacious basement is occupied with piles of books, a collection of tens of thousands of volumes.[1] After Hugh moved in, some of the books were carried back upstairs, to the bookshelves built into the walls, up to the ceiling, of almost all the rooms of the mansion. Books who didn’t fit the packed bookshelves were placed on the floor, preventing the flow of air. Books of all types, old and new, expensive and cheap, from scientific papers to stories for the general public.[15] A house-elf works for Dalian, organizing the books in the basement.[16] The books are damaged by silverfish, insects difficult to exterminate. They appear when the mansion is damp, especially when water from the rain leaks inside it.[17]

The garden hasn’t been looked after in years, so it looks more like a wasteland.[1] On the southeast side of the residence there’s a small garden, filled with the scent of flowers, overgrown with weeds. There one can find a small greenhouse with roses, raspberries and intertwining branches growing in different directions. The Queen of the Night is found inside the greenhouse.[11]

After her marriage, Hugh’s mother was sent by the Diswards to live away from the capital, in Wesley’s house. Wesley allocated the guest room for her. At that time, a gardener cared for the courtyard, which greeted the guests with beautiful flowers, lush green lawns and slender trees.[2]

The interior of the mansion seems more luxurious in the anime. The gate has the coat of arms of the Disward family, which says “ask, seek, knock” and “mors spectatum omnes quisque”.[18] In the manga adaptation, the place looks more like an empty, haunted mansion. There’s even graves and crows in the courtyard.[19]

Personality[]

Wesley valued books above everything else. His passion inspired respect and envy. He spent a fortune to grow his collection. He filled his mansion with books. Although he talked to Hugh about Phantom Books and the Dantalian’s Bookshelf, Hugh never felt close to his grandfather. However, the eccentric bibliomaniac probably influenced Hugh’s love for reading. Because Wesley was involved with forbidden knowledge, his relatives kept their distance and never visited him. Wesley saw in Hugh a person worthy to inherit his book collection and the Dantalian’s Bookshelf. Dalian saw Wesley as a good person. She laments his death. According to Hugh, Wesley was a lonely man, but he probably found happiness by spending time with Dalian. She was precious to Wesley, so the bibliomaniac entrusted her to his grandson.[1][2]

Appearance[]

Wesley was never described in the light novel.[10] In the manga, he appears as an old man with a long white mustache and long white hair, tied at the back of his head. He has many rings in his left hand, and he uses a dark cane with a decorative head of a horse at one end.[19] As a young man, he looked just like Hugh. He used to wear a dark vest over a long-sleeved white shirt and necktie. He also wears white gloves and a dark top hat. He often uses a monocle over his left eye.[12][20] In the anime, he appears as an old man with short gray hair and mustache, wearing a brown suit, supported by a cane.[21]

Plot[]

Gastronomy Worship[]

A little girl cries in front of a small burial. She turns to a carriage and asks for knowledge. There’s a wish she wants to fulfill. The door of the carriage slowly opens. Wesley gives a book to the little girl. He affirms that, until the time to return it, she’s the owner of the Phantom Book. But he tells her not to forget that there are things in the world that shouldn’t be known.

Years later, Hugh examines the book collection of Graham Atkinson. The gourmet notices that Hugh has a keen eye for books. Atkinson expected nothing less from Wesley’s grandson. Everyone involved in political intrigues knew the bibliomaniac. Atkinson knows that Hugh inherited the Dantalian’s Bookshelf from Wesley. Hugh read in Wesley’s diary that the bibliomaniac gave the Book of Meditation of Supreme Cooking to someone years ago. It’s revealed that Leslie, Atkinson’s chef, received the Phantom Book from Wesley.[10]

Book of Wisdom[]

At a second-hand bookshop, Dalian gets furious because Hugh refuses to buy an entire bookshelf for her. Dalian affirms that Wesley always bought books that way. Hugh tells her not to compare him with his bibliomaniac grandfather. Soon after, Hugh and Dalian meet Kamilla. The latter heard that Hugh was taking care of the girl adopted by Wesley. Kamilla often visited the Disward estate with her father. After all, Wesley was a frequent client of Kamilla’s father. Kamilla asks if Hugh found the Dantalian’s Bookshelf. Kamilla suspected that Wesley was the owner of the mystical library.[8]

Hugh returns to the Disward estate.

Wesley also told Hugh to take care of Dalian.

Dalian expected nothing less from Wesley’s grandson. Dalian reveals that Wesley bought the “heaven in the pot”, although Hugh treats her story as a work of fiction.

Hugh is invited to dinner by Henry Conrad. Hugh heard rumors about Conrad. It’s said that Conrad murdered Wesley to steal an old book Wesley got during an auction. Hugh doesn’t want to avenge Wesley, but he goes to Conrad’s house anyway. The book bought by Wesley is causing trouble, so Hugh feels responsible. Since Hugh doesn’t trust Conrad, he carries a revolver, a memento of Wesley. It’s revealed that Conrad really killed Wesley. However, Conrad died since he was not the reader chosen by The Harlequinade he stole. In Conrad’s house, Dalian reveals herself as the vessel containing the Dantalian’s Bookshelf. Hugh becomes her new key-keeper, replacing his late grandfather.[1]

In the anime, when Hugh reads the Book of Fairy, a flashback shows Wesley being shot. Dalian is sad with his death.[18]

In the manga, Hugh remembers when he found The Harlequinade as a child. On that occasion, Wesley took the Phantom Book from the boy’s hands and replaced it with a fantasy book. Wesley says “there are things in the world that shouldn’t be known”.[19]

Dalian heard that the Diswards are terrible bibliomaniacs. Antoinette affirms that the line of bibliomaniacs will end soon. After all, her father damaged his eyesight in an accident, so he stopped reading.

Trivia[]

  • Bibliomania can be a symptom of obsessive–compulsive disorder which involves the collecting or even hoarding of books to the point where social relations or health are damaged. It's characterized by the collecting of books which have no use to the collector nor any great intrinsic value to a genuine book collector. On the other hand, bibliophilia is the love of books.[28]
  • In the anime, the family coat of arms at the gate of the Disward estate has the words "ask", "seek" and "knock". It's a reference to the Bible verse Matthew 7:7, which says "everyone who asks receives, the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened". Hugh, the golden key and Dantalian's Bookshelf within Dalian may be an analogy to this verse.[18]
    • The family coat of arms also reads "mors spectatum omnes quisque".[18] It's Latin for "Death watches everyone".
    • Wesley loved books so much that he included one in the coat of arms.[29]
    • A flashback in Episode 1 shows an alternative coat of arms of the Disward family with the entire transcription of Matthew 7:7.[18] This same version appears in the menu of the OVA DVD.[30]
    • The coat of arms was created by Jun Tamaya, former GAINAX employee.[31]
    • The supporters of the coat of arms are basilisks.[31] In European bestiaries and legends, a basilisk is a legendary reptile reputed to be a serpent king, who can cause death with a single glance.[32] The cockatrice is sometimes referred to as a basilisk, but the heraldic basilisk possess a tail ending in a dragon's head.[33] The supporters and the crown above the shield reflects Wesley's Viscount rank.[29]
    • The escutcheon contains three fleurs-de-lis, a decorative design or symbol used in the heraldry of numerous European nations, but particularly associated with France, notably during its monarchical period.[34]
