Subject: STOLEN BOOKS – Ian Fleming and Jeremy Taylor
The following two titles were stolen from our stand at the Royal National
Hotel on Sunday afternoon, we would be most grateful to hear if they should
turn up on the market:
** 1) TAYLOR, Jeremy. 1649; An answer to a letter…original sin, *lacking
the first leaf, blank but for signature, given by Sir Edmund Gosse to the
Episcopal library of Connor and Down, * 1656, first editions, *calf, gilt,
by de Coverly*
2) FLEMING, Ian. Thunderball. Cape, 1961 1st Ed. Fine copy in DW with small
patch of foxing to fore-edge. (Identifiable by a mark to a particular page).
Not sure what Jeremy Taylor would have to say about the theft, let alone
being taken alongside something as decadent as Bond!
