We're interested, or at least possibly interestable, in principle.
Just getting aholt of a copy to evaluate the feasibility of
photo-offset is a challenge; one tends to put off the tasks
involving recourse to ILL when in the middle of one's pre-
SBL/AAR mania. As Clay notes, the sales potential isn't that
hot, but if we cd achieve an acceptable print quality and do
an affordable reprint without taking too big a bath it would
probably generate warm fuzzy feelings amongst our clientele.
Anybody who wants to loan me a clean copy is welcome to
write off-list.
