I recommend the AbeBooks website - www.abebooks.co.uk. It is excellent for locating new and secondhand books, especially ones which are rare or obscure. Put in the search details, and any copies for sale by participating booksellers will be displayed. I have just looked for this title, and there are four copies for sale.
I recommend you use the author's full name in the search, otherwise you will have to search through thousands of entries for Ernest Hemingway's rather better known and similarly named book!

How can one get hold of a copy of this elusive book?
When I was in Wellington in 2005, a member of staff at the War Memorial had one copy on display, but no stock and couldn’t tell me where I could purchase a copy.   Also, as far as I can see, the book doesn’t feature at all on the War Memorial web site.
Sadly, when we visited, Callum and I only caught the last five minutes of the lunch time recital because the Tourist Information Centre told us the wrong time …it seems you wonderful carillon is quite a well kept secret in Wellington !

Re: war memorial bells with name inscriptions


A prime example is the 74-bell National War Memorial Carillon in Wellington , New Zealand . Of the 49 original Gillett & Johnston bells from 1929, 46 have inscription/dedications to specific individuals (i.e. war casualties) and/or regiments invloved in WWI. Details included in "For Whom the Bells Toll" by Chris Maclean [Heritage Group, Department of Internal Affairs, Wellington , 1998].
