    Usually you are able to get books mailed to you from other Libraries but because of where this one is located I'm unaware (doubt) if that is the case.
    Can I, a Louisianan, get it from a local or university library? Merci, sha

      If it is in rare books I doubt it, those are seldom let out of the reading room, and even there access may be tightly controlled.

      There are two ways to be fooled, one is to believe what isn't true, the other is to refuse to believe that which is true.

        Try this link: http://www.worldcat.org/
        It can show you the nearest library owning the book, if any does.

          I had to read this post twice because I'm also from Louisiana (what are the odds) and when I first read it I thought you somehow knew and were teasing me.

          To answer your question, I'm not sure. You can call their university and see if they will mail it to you but I doubt it since they are keeping it in their a rare books collection.

          There also might be some off chance that a used book store or local library who isn't all digitally organized might have it.

              For those interested this book is now for sale on ebay.

              Having read it twice I must say that I found it to be a very unique and highly informative book.

              It's quite expensive but it is one of the rarest and very difficult to find anywhere.

                I regret not getting this one when it came out.

                  Mango Books announced a new, fully revised edition a few months back. Hopefully we’ll see it later this year.
