Large Theft from Passages in Portland, OR

6 January 2020: 
Passages Bookshop (in Portland, Oregon) was broken into on 2 January 2020. A first estimate is that 100-150 books were stolen from smashed display cases.

Most of the books are rare and signed editions of poetry, literature, photography, and modern art. I have only begun to identify the missing titles; a first shortlist follows, and we'll send an update with additional details when possible.

In case anyone suspects that they are offered material from this incident, the police contact is:
Officer Anthony Hill, Portland Bureau of Police
503-545-3436
Case number 20-1394

Or please contact the bookshop directly
