    Hi Patrick,
    Try's out of print book search service. I've turned up a few
    obscure out of print books that way. You will need a credit card (or
    someone with one) to initiate the search, and you may not get it time
    for Santa to include it in your stocking, but it may be worth a try.....
    Best regards, Marc Bradshaw
