It is in and out of print (we believe it currently out of print).This copy in ADOBE (PDF) format was obtained on the InterNet from:
There are several scattered pages in this copy which are blank (showing a blue-grey panel on our copies of the Adobe Reader), but the overall value of this document is diminished but slightly if at all by this, for it remains extremely useful.

We therefore have provided it in two formats:
