These books were former possessions of Kinzo Ushiromiya known as the "Ushiromiya Library".

Plot

Alliance of the Golden Witch

In Alliance of the Golden Witch, Professor Ootsuki is visited by Ange Ushiromiya masquerading as a member of the Sumadera family. Ange inquires about the message bottles and uses Ootsuki to confirm that the handwriting in the message bottles matches that of a message Beatrice wrote in the diary of Maria Ushiromiya. After Ange leaves, it is implied that Ootsuki is tortured by Kasumi Sumadera for allowing himself be deceived by Ange.
