Missing Books Alert

Just in from Joslin Hall Rare Books:

"The following books were in a box which has gone missing in transit- well, the top arrived, but the rest of the box, and all the books, did not. Our assumption is that anyone in possession of them might try to sell them as a group. If you are offered these books as a group, we'd be very
appreciative if you could let us know."
