A search of Amazon showed a used copy for $393.48. Some one must be fatcat
to pay this price for the book. Looks like this is one more reason why
electronic copy should be available. If the publishers do not address the
need, theosophical enthusiasts will end up doing a quick job with a scanner.
At this rate, theosophical publishers will be sitting ducks.
