    If you can't find it in the library you can always request it. I request things all the time and the library buys them in. Not sure about a book at that price but worth a try

    Yeah the price is just the problem, I can't imagine libraries have a lot of funding in these times either..

    If you're anywhere near any of the UK's Legal Deposit libraries:

    - Bodleian Libraries, Oxford
    - Cambridge University Library
    - National Library of Wales
    - Library of Trinity College, Dublin
    - National Library of Wales

    ... then they're entitled to a free copy of every single book that's ever been published.

    I'm lucky that I live just outside Oxford so I've been to the Bodleian a couple of times to have a look at old publications that I couldn't find online or in any local libraries :cute:

    I started checking that after your post, and I'm not really near any of them. Closest is Oxford or Wales (depending where it is) which are both 1hr+ away.

    I am not that desperate

    Did it work? If you then leave the trial, to get you to stay they'll give you a second free token.

    Then you can just leave for good.
