Short summary:  The author is upset at the fact that Quaritch booksellers apparently are demanding from the addressee the full amount that they paid Arne Holmquist for the stolen copy of Harvey's De motu cordis: the book is the addressee's property and they have no right to any compensation; the author has just purchased a book on blood transfusion by G. A. Mercklin, 1679 and he wants to know if the addressee knows about this book
