UPDATE August 20, 2008:
I was able to borrow the book "THE SALLEY RING" at my local library through "interlibrary loan" in June. The book came from the University of Florida, USA. I had emailed them, requesting if the book could be purchased. They could not sell items from their collection, but have given me the results of their extensive research. (Someone should create a bumper sticker that says: HUG YOUR LOCAL LIBRARIAN 'CUZ THEY DO GOOD THINGS FOR STRANGERS!) I would really like to thank the research department at UFLIB, and C. Seale, for all of this work! MUCH more than I was able to find!
The following is their reply:
What an interesting story and quest! Unfortunately, this book would not be available for sale from our collection. We did find that several other libraries have the book in their collections:
