a found sketchbook

found among the things of someone who can’t tell me about it.
i guess she must have found it in turn; i don’t know when – no later than 2001, not sooner than 1997, i think – and i don’t know where: in england or wales, probably in london, but… forgotten on a bus? thrown away? among books in a charity shop?
i'm so curious because, in fact, i know whose this is. it’s a book of sketches and notes for the stage design of a theatre production, and inside the cover the designer wrote her address and the theatre’s.
maybe the luzern stadttheater production of the elixir of love is long gone – I couldn’t find it listed on the internet – maybe ms jacqueline gunn (hers are the lovely pictures below) doesn’t care anymore about having her sketchbook back.
but, i wonder: should the finder have sent it to the cover address? should i do so now? do i have the right to be here posting this?
(oh, if the author could read this and tell me! or maybe she could tell me: take it off your site, immediately, and burn it…)

    If it’d been my sketchbook, I’d want it back. I have lots of sketchbooks, never throw them away. They’re like my own private record of how my drawing has progressed over the years. If I found a sketchbook with an address in it, I’d at least write a letter offering to return it.

    I actually work with the artist/ Theatre designer who is the original owner of the sketchbook
    She would love to have it back, and is very excited to hear that it was found, if you would like to contact me through my email address maybe we can arrange the postage of the sketch book, Jacqueline will be very pleased to re emburse any postage costs.
    Thanks Sarah

    so, all’s well that ends well – the sketchbook has found its way back to ms gunn (posted and received).
    sometimes (well, nearly at all times) i love the internet.
