RARA-AVIS: RE: Daly & used books

George, good example, yes the early Daly titles are difficult to find in original state and frankly just are not worth it. I have a number of specific books that I've found to be quite difficult to locate for various reasons. But I think also it is a matter of persistence, I've found incredibly difficult to unearth titles by just keeping them on the old wantlist and they eventually come my way. But if for some reason I had had an urgent need for them, say for a deadline on an article, forget finding them.
