German Bible (1560) Missing

From the ABAA security listserv:

"Gone missing, and perhaps stolen, while in transit from Connecticut to British Columbia or in BC:

German Bible (Title = "Biblia. Das ist die gantze heylige Schrift, Teutsch D. Mart. Luth.") in two volumes, printed in Frankfurt in 1560. Folio (about 14 inches high), bound in plain dark brown calf, raised bands, simple gilt lettering on spine. With hand-colored woodcuts and with more
than 1,000 very charming and quite distinctive hand-painted vignettes in the margins, probably done in the 16th century."

If you have any information on this title, please contact Pirages.
