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)
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:

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.
