Not one single copy of this book can be found anywhere -- what happened? Did it get added to the PC gestapo's Index Librorum Prohibitorum and burned at the stake? All kinds of crap published within the last two hundred years are perfectly available, even if out of print. What about this one? What did he discover that required such a massive covert operation of elimination of every copy. Please advise.
