Thanks, Ward - I was going to reply as such to Tim.  I have only a couple
of months ago done just that - purchased a copy from Unicorn, and I can
confirm A) it's not cheap - try converting to Oz dollars and frighten
yourself silly!  b) two volumes, bound with fibre tape, not bad, but they
came all the way here in just a normal oversize envelope, no packing to
speak of, arriving undamaged luckily,  and c) most pages legible, but found
a couple that had been photocopied "on a skew" but still included.  Over
all I'm glad I forked out for it.  Very interesting!
