Re: book copy


  I am a used-book junkie, particularly classic books on audition, vision, perception, physiology, mathematics and experimental psychology.  I am particularly fond of books that are signed by the scientists that owned them.  Needless to say I was quite pleased when Harris' book arrived and it turned out to have been owned previously by Creelman.  I am saddened that this book appears to have been taken from you.  I'd be more than happy to return the book to you.

  I always keep the receipts for my books.  Looks like I purchased Harris' book while I was a Post-doc at Wisconsin for $30 on August 16, 2000 from a Toronto bookseller "Dr. Hoff's Therapeutic Bibliotheca" http://www.drhoff.com/books.htm
Dr. Tory Hoff, Psychologist
2 Carlton Street, Suite 1009, Toronto, Ontario M5B 1J3
(at College Street subway stop on Yonge)
phone: 416-429-9767
fax: 416-489-3351

You might be able to follow up with Dr Hoff to see who sold him the book.

Here's the description from the bookseller at the time:

SOURCE BOOK IN PSYCHOACOUSTICS; Groton, CT Journal of Auditory Research 1969 1st edition Size: 7x10 [xiv, 442p, references, index] psychology psychoacoustics audition sound loudness threshold binaural hearing Cream paperback with black lettering, minor edgewear & no tears, covers lightly soiled & creased, spine area lightly browned, owner signature in ink at top of front cover, page ends lightly soiled, internally very good, tight & clean copy, VERY GOOD 7901 psycogn .

Hello, Daniel -
I am glad someone appreciative has the copy of that book of readings 
edited by Haris that I lost years ago. It vanished when I left it out 
for students in a seminar, for them to read selections. I would be 
fascinated to know the provenance, the path it took to Denver.
Best wishes,
Doug Creelman
