As your countryman David Ricardo so vividly
expressed it, it's the *comparative* advan-
tage, not absolute income, which best explains
our behavior.

Does your University not offer inter-library
loan services?

When I write, "buy", that abbreviates an
entire constellation of assumptions and reali-
zations.  Most bluntly, if it's worth the
expense to the kingdom to keep you titled as
a Research Fellow in Mathematics, then it's
worth it to someone to ensure a book which 
will benefit you so much reaches your hands
safely.

If no one else steps forward, Dr. Quick, I
will; write me privately and I'll arrange for
a copy to reach you.

This book has many virtues.  Its coverage of
Tkinter occupies ten pages, and is slightly
outdated.  It uses those ten pages to good
advantage, though.
