These books were still reported missing as of May 29, 2019.

Over the last few months books belonging to the "Botanical Library of Harrison G. Yocum" have gone missing from Tucson, Arizona.  These range in age from seventeenth century botanical works to modern books on plants and gardening.  They can be identified by the owner's name "Harrison G. Yocum" and/or the statement "Botanical Library of Harrison G. Yocum" on a Front endpaper in a flowery handwriting.  To the best of our knowledge NO Books from this collection have as yet been legitimately deaccessioned by the current owners. At least one ABAA member has already been contacted concerning one or more volumes. We would appreciate any information concerning books from this Collection and the individual(s) offering this material.  Thank you for your assistance. Michelle G.
