Re: How to get a book? #hungary

Tom,


It almost certainly is out of copyright by now (Author's lifetime plus 50
years).

If the library is interested in retaining the book for its contents and not
so much for the actual original physical object, then perhaps you could
persuade them to photocopy it, and have the copy bound, all at your expense
of course.

They could then retain the bound copy and allow you to purchase the
original, sentimentally valuable to you, original book.

Dear all,

I need a tip. My uncle, a Holocaust victim and a quite prominent lawyer, wrote a
book, published in 1938.I discovered a copy in a Slovak library and tried to buy
it but was turned down by the chief librarian.

Any ideas about how I could convince her to sell it to me. To the library the
book is just an old tractate dusting on their shelves, for me an invaluable
memorabilia.

Many thanks and regards
Tom
