Thanks Bill.  Alibris is another nice place to check for out of print 

UW doesn't have it, and I'm going to call Elliott Bay before making a trip 
downtown.  Otherwise, I'll go with Powells.  (Bookpool has it listed as 
out of stock, though cheaper; Powells has some in stock.  Thanks for the 
tip on bookpool.  Good to know another resource.)
