Stolen Books of Unknown Ownership

Published on 22 Sept. 2018

The Art and Antiques Squad at New Scotland Yard have asked the Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association (ABA) to put out the following message and list.

In 2008 a number of books were stolen from a British library. This year a number of the books were recovered in Barcelona. The following list are books that were recovered along with the identified stolen books, but ownership is unknown and suspected stolen. Does anyone recognise them?
