Quirinus Quirrell: "P-P-Potter. C-can't t-tell you how p-pleased I am to meet you."
Harry Potter: "What sort of magic do you teach, Professor Quirrell?"
Quirinus Quirrell: "D-Defence Against the D-D-Dark Arts. N-not that you n-need it, eh, P-P-Potter? You'll be g-getting all your equipment, I suppose? I've g-got to p-pick up a new b-book on vampires, m-myself."
Quirinus Quirrell to Harry Potter.[src]

A book on vampires was published at some point before July, 1991. Quirinus Quirrell told Harry Potter and Rubeus Hagrid that he was going to Diagon Alley in order to buy a copy of this book, when in reality he wished to break into Gringotts Wizarding Bank to steal the Philosopher's Stone.[1]

Quirrell mentioning the book to Harry and Hagrid

  • The existence of this book is debatable, as it is possible that Quirrell simply made it up rather than referring to an already existing publication.
