I have been searching online, for days, hoping to purchase a used copy of the Thurston novel JANE CARROLL but without success. I am casting my hopes into the Mudcat now, in case someone has an unwanted copy in the attic or on an old bookshelf. Please ?

That's an Abebooks link to a copy. Looks like it comes from a shop in Vermont, Fairlane Books. They might discount if you email them about it, buy directly from them or something.

Good luck.

A couple more copies, also on Abebooks. I think there are like 30,000 booksellers hooked into that website, so you might be hard pressed to find any other copies available right now.

Thanks a lot Songwronger . I have seen those sites that you linked but, unfortunately, their prices , including post & Pack to Ireland are just too damned expensive for me. But thanks anyway for taking an interest and for the trouble.
(PS I've been trying to "tie" this onto my original post but have failed)
I moved this post into your original thread. -Mod

Hi Beachcomber -

The Irish interlibrary loan site http://www.borrowbooks.ie/# indicates that there is one copy in Cork County libraries and one copy in Waterford County libraries (those are the catalogues I searched - there are others in libraries further away from you). If you use the "advanced search" tab (I put in the title as the keyword) and specify which catalogues you want to look through, it will give you a page of results. (Sorry for not providing any blue clickies but the Cat is SOOOO SLOOO-OOOO-OOOWWW today that my browser lost the will to live even before I did.)

For some reason, Cork City Library is "temporarily" not on this system (ironic, considering where E Temple Thurston was born) but I will be going there in the next few weeks to renew my card. I can make enquiries and then email you, if you get no joy otherwise. Let me know. Or else you can ring/email them: 021-492-4900 libraries@corkcity.ie

It's also worth asking Gregory Carr in Dublin http://www.readireland.ie/ and Kenny's in Galway http://www.bookshop.kennys.ie/ who have (or at least had, last time I needed something) a very good search-for-O/P-titles service. Also Liam Ruiseal in Cork http://www.lrbooks.net - sales@lrbooks.net - 021-427-0981

There's also the Boole Library at UCC, from whom you can't borrow, but they might be able to point you in the right direction, or at least ask someone from the university's excellent Irish-interest/history staff.

Surely SOMEbody in all this should be able to help you! Keep me posted via email how you get on.

Hope all is well - Bonnie

Hey, thanks for all that information Bonnie. Waterford County Library is the nearest to me and I will get on to them right away.
Possibly the copy that they have is held within the Library at all times but I can go there. I'll post the result of my enquiries (If that is ok ?)

I hope that you other good people will bear with me as I just let "Bonnie" and "Songwronger" know that I have been told that Waterford County Library have a Reference copy of that novel and that I will be able to read it in the Library Branch nearest to me.
Thanks both for your interest.

Wow Jack, great. I'd never even heard of AddAll - new bookmark coming up.

You must be referring to the copy at Eclecta Books at Stockport in the UK. Good detective work, cheers.
