£10 REWARD. A Mystery. A valuable volume of ITALIAN DRAWINGS, consisting of Ornamental Letters, by Vichomercato, temp. 1450, 1 vol. folio, bound in vellum, which my packer says he put into a small box, along with other MSS. and books, sent by steamer, July 3, 1867, to Ireland, has not reached its destination.
I am at a loss to know what has become of this volume: whether the box has been opened during the transit, or whether the volume was mis-packed.
My packer is most positive that he placed it in the box.
£io reward will be given to the person who restores this volume to me:-and no questions asked. B. QUARITCH.
