"I don't. The book was published when I was out of the country." After he straight up did a jailbreak and became a fugitive, that is, but let's keep that little detail to himself for now! Carefully, Strange takes the book from Lambert, holding it as he starts to flip casually though the pages.
"And, even more unfortunately, my former mentor vanished all copies of my book from England shortly after it was published. I've no idea if my book even exists any more back home."
Obviously this is a point of contention: Strange's voice is tight, tense and angry. This is possibly the point of no return for him and Norrell, at least in Strange's mind. Attack him all he wants but to quarrel with his book? To try and attack (what he thought was) the last remaining thing Strange could do to remember Arabella? That was beyond the pale.
"And before you ask, he destroyed my book because he feels it's dangerous."
