Short summary:  Information that the stolen copy of Harvey's "De motu cordis ..." has been returned to the addressee with request that he acknowledge its receipt in due course; information that the request for restitution from the Arne Holmquist estate has received a negative response since the estate lacks resources to do so; Quaritch Ltd. still maintain that they have a good cause for expecting the restitution of their purchase price, even if there has not been the slightest question of their not returning the book
