A fine set of Lacam’s doctoral work, both rarely available and particularly nice with the inscriptions to his mentor, John Kent, who wrote the foreword to NB *** and of whom Lacam wrote, “Notre gratitude va, en particular, au Dr J. P. C. Kent du British Museum, qui nous a subi en maintes occasions avec gentillesse et humour, avant de nous donner d’ultimes conseils et nous faire l’honneur de présenter notre travail, malagré ses lacunes et ses insuffisances.” A most interesting set.
