I believe that the copy of this book shown in these pictures belongs to me! It was stolen from me back in 1992 by a woman I was living with just outside of Phila Pa. I purchased it from a man named Jerome Shockey in Sykesville Md in the mid 1980s. The reason I believe this is because of the cover swirl design, as well as the fact that when I purchased it . between the last page and the back cover, there was a note from around 1920 from a gentleman in Britain stating that he had found this copy for a man who was looking for it, and also the price in either Lira or british pounds. That note created a dark shadow on the back page due to the years it had been in the book. That shadow can clearly be seen in the photo posted here of the last page. I am going to see if I can find an attorney to pursue getting the book returned to me!
