    This solo task begins with Curator Risald in the Library. He's located in the room next to the zone-in.

    You say, 'Hail, Curator Risald'

    Curator Risald says 'You do not appear to be a dreamer. You should not be in this place. However, since you are here, perhaps I can make use of you. I have a [problem] that must be addressed.'

    You say, 'What problem?'

    Curator Risald says 'An inventory was recently conducted and we found several books have been removed from the library. Obviously we need these books to be returned and that's where you come in. Would you be willing to [search] the house and surrounding grounds for the missing books?'

    You say, 'I'll search for them'

    Curator Risald says 'How fortunate. Some of these have been missing for quite some time, while others have vanished only recently. One such book, Fallen Gods, was most recently seen in the hands of Athmos the Poet. I look forward to the return of the missing volumes.'

    You have been assigned the task 'Book Hunt'.

    Curator Risald has asked you to locate several books that have gone missing from the library. He has advised you to search the first floor of the house and the surrounding grounds.

    Curator Risald mentioned that Fallen Gods was last seen in the hands of Athmos the Bard.

    The one in the Well was our biggest problem. The maps we downloaded have an incorrect location. The one we found it at was -325 -150 37. right at entry to big room, sometimes called the middle room. the one without an exit to the Grounds
    Solved for me: :Last step

    I did this on two toons at the same time. One i kept the books one i did not (deleted them as i went along).
    The curator would not respond until i went back and re-collected the missing books, Hailed him and completed the quest.

    When you do the final hail you must have all the books in your inventory. When you hail and get credit they disappear.

    Repop time on the Sailing book was 6 minutes. I didn't check the others. Most I could pick up without breaking invisibility. Occasionally I had to resort to more creative methods.

    This quest (and Athmos's quest that you need to do to get one of the books) is part of the Partisan of the Library achievement, hence part of acquiring Trophy of the Bookkeeper (which bestows a Heroic Wisdom tribute buff).
