Book Dealers' Victoria Lucas [Sylvia Plath] Bell Jar Stolen

Jonkers Rare Books of London recently reported the theft of a first edition of The Bell Jar by Victoria Lucas [Sylvia Plath]. This 1963 edition is price-clipped. Please see the ABAA security "Missing and Stolen Books Blog".

Theft in the rare book world - and anywhere else for that matter - is a terrible shame. If you read this blog and have a blog of your own, please spread the word in hopes that the book can and will be recovered. Thank you.

What a tragedy... any kind of theft is just horrible, but this, being a Plath follower, makes it that much worse.

Thank you for the link to the Gaebler article.

Chris, the late Elaine Connell's partner, is looking into the Forum being down. Let's hope it's back online without too much delay.
