At a certain level you need very large hands — MrGoldbee · 1370
And a strong back - I nearly gave myself a hernia trying to exile my collection. — bricklebrite · 445
Has anyone ever tried to have as many cards in your hand as possible? Maybe Mandy with 50 cards (+10 2x versatile)? Dream enhancing serum with many myriad cards? — Django · 4753

15 Cards in hand is very unlikely unless I've missed something that gets you a huge hand size boost and even then you're unlikely to both fill the hand and want to hold them all.

10 is doable with the new size boosters (Looking at Harvey Walters) but a card in hand is one you aren't using

Quite a few Seekers routinely hold 5 cards for their Educational edification however. It's not fast or free but if you're playing with a big hand anyway you might want this over the Magnifying glass (it's a Tome)

EDIT: I missed Dream Enhancing Serum which could get you some very big hands -you're probably still better off just throwing the cards at checks most of the time.

Dream Enhancing Serum, plus most of Harvey Walters’ deck honestly. Keeping 15 is not hard at all, and 5 gets you to Magnifying Glass level on its own. — StyxTBeuford · 12879
1$ for +1 will — MrGoldbee · 1370
I've played Carolyn and Roland and can confirm that Dream Enhancing Serum + Rook gets you cards quickly, especially if Rook triggers the serum. Astounding revelation for more secrets on rook also helps the combo going. — Django · 4753
Minh Thi Phan with Lab assistant + Dream-enhancing serum has easily 10-12 cards in hand. WIth the help of Blood ritual, Feed the mind, Studious, ... it's doable if you design your deck for this purpose. — AlexP · 243
And realistically this is great even at 10 cards. Similar to Camera except you can actually combo this with anything that cares about tomes. — StyxTBeuford · 12879
Even with 5 cards the +1 INT is better than mag class for INT tests that are not investigations (mostly scenario our encounter cards) — Django · 4753
Big Hand Mandy with Arcane Enlightment might like this tome, and she'd have plent of hands to hold it in.... — LivefromBenefitSt · 997
I agree -- good at five, great at ten. For Parallel Daisy, even more so. She gets a will boost for each tome as well, regardless of cost or xp level. This makes the cheapo tomes like this one even more efficient. You're paying 1 resource for a hawk-eye that already has two resources on it (assuming you can hit the 5 card threshold) — Mordenlordgrandison · 415
