A lien or other right to retain possession of any books, papers or other records of a bankrupt is unenforceable to the extent that its enforcement would deny possession of any books, papers or other records to the official receiver or the trustee of the bankrupt's estate1; but this provision does not apply to a lien on documents which give a title to property and are held as such2.
