This mob's PH is "A Burning Tome Whirlwind" There are two I noticed when clearing that always spawn in the same place as the same mob or the Tome-Eater every time.

The first location is on the first floor of the library on the east side of the pile of burning books in the middle of the library.

The second location is on the second floor on the South East side of building at the top back of the south stairwell.

It is very worth it to kill both of the PH's when camping this mob speeding up the rate of return by double. The mobs here are extremely easy for high 80's to low 90's to box with mercs in many combinations. I used 90 chanter mage and bard with two healer mercs and a tank merc and the only time I got into trouble is when I tried to auto follow and the bard went outside to gather some more mobs running around the building. The only time you get more than two mobs at a time in this building is if you push a mob into aggro range of another. The burning book pile downstairs has the potential for up to four mobs at a time if not completely cleared but again no real hassle and a little care can be taken to single pull these apart I was just lazy and didnt care.

There is another named in this building on the second floor with a PH maybe two. Several names that spawn close to the building outside if you want to work the area it pays well, almost always something up to equip a toon or a twink.

Took about 8 hours of constant killing the spawns to yieldn two or more of each Tome-Eater drop except the staff which only dropped once.
I had no idea the account name would be the name I post under.

Staring at him right now he is yellow to a level 90.

Spawned inside the Library, second floor. No backup so I left him be.

EDIT: 3 boxed it tonight with 90 SK, 90 Chanter, and 90 Shaman with 1 DPS and 2 Healer mercs. Didn't pay attention to any spell names or anything just wanted him out of the way so I could get a pillager that was stuck (Hate's Attraction sent him warping around and got him stuck in the wall) next to him.

It is harder to clear to him then it is to take him. Books assisted through the floor (Yay for AE mez) so I would take him on the south side instead of the north side where he paths every few minutes (That is where I took him and the books below assisted).

Dropped Recondite Remnant of Survival and a few trade-skill items. Would have rather had the cape.
