Shanks, have a look at http://www.abebooks.com for classic and rare books. I've found most of mine through their search engine. Also a retailer like John Norris in the UK might have a copy of the Falkus book collecting dust somewhere.

Oh yeah, a few years back when I was looking for the McMillan book I could only find it in softcover and it was really tough to track down then.

I have a new second copy of the Combs book and a well used copy of the Faulkis book that I would be willing to part with at a reasonable price.

By second copy I mean that it is my second copy, a first edition.

The local fly shop, Grindstone Angling, has a new hard cover copy of the Trey Combs book plus they stock scond hand copies of older books and might have some of the others in stock as well.  Their email recently changed because of the @HOME collapse but I think their new one is [email protected].

Go to www.bibliofind.com A search by author or title on that site will locate copies from a huge network of bookstores around the country. You can compare prices, then buy over the net with credit card. Great for hard-to-find and out-of-print books.
