I searched for this book on the Web, and have found that two copies of it are on sale on Abebooks for about U.S. $800. Google Books does not have a downloadable copy, but its 'find in a library' feature turns up 15 copies. Also, several old books with long listings of other books for sale from the same publisher list this book. Thus, the note in one library's copy that only 14 copies were printed does not seem to be accurate.
