The good news is that this paperback edition is priced at USD 20.00.
The bad news is that currently reports:

Paperback (March 1990)
                 Ares Pub; ISBN: 0890050945
                 Availability: This title is currently on back
                 order. We do not have a reprint date for
                 this title, but we expect to be able to ship
                 it to you within 3-5 weeks.

Perhaps a sudden rush of orders from the list might speed things up <g>

BTW, I'm the Maurice who initiated this question, and to me only should
ignorance on the question be attributed. <vbg>
