Yes, this particular book happens to contain all four of the novels.  The
book doesn't look like it has its own copyright though, so it may be OK to
fix the missing text by scanning it from the original book.  We can check on
that if I don't hear back from the submitter.  The missing page(s) are from
the book Lady Knight and happen to be at the end of a chapter, so it/they
would not be hard to find.

In the mean time, if you would like to give me an oppinion on whether or not
we can use the above method as a backup plan, here's the copyright page from
the book.

Looks to me as if that wouldn't be a problem.  What do you think?

Are you sure you have the title right? I looked in my
library's online catalog, and that seems to be a
series title, because there were 4 individual books
listed. Does the book you have have all four books in
one volume?

In case the person who submitted it doesn't get back
to you, I can get the book and anwer your questions
about the garbled pages and fix the table of contents
and send it to you, but not if you have a volume with
alal four stories, because my library only has the
individual ones.
