There is no way anyone can profit from this book, except used book stores. It is long out of print and a search I've just done yields only two online copies for sale (the title is "Bowen Escapades"winking smiley - one for 90 and one for 150 dollars. I have access to big research libraries and just did a search on WorldCat - there are no copies in major libraries anywhere. This is a document that needs to be scanned to be preserved for posterity. I would happily do so (I have access to good scanning) but don't have access to a copy. Yet!

Some guidelines from the University world on fair use and out-of-print books:

Out-of-Print-Book

SCENARIO 10: A library has a book that is out of print and unavailable. The book is an important one in the professor's field that she needs for her research. The professor would like to copy the book for her files.

FAIR USE? Yes. This is another example of personal use. If one engages in the fair use analysis, one finds that: (1) the purpose of the use is educational versus commercial; (2) the professor is using the book, a creative work, for research purposes; (3) copying the entire book would normally exceed the bounds of fair use, however, since the book is out of print and no longer available from any other source, the copying is acceptable; (4) finally, the copying will have no impact on the market for the book because the book is no longer available from any other source.

SCENERIO 11: Using the same facts as explained in SCENARIO 10 could the professor copy the book and place the book on reserve in the library? Could the professor scan the book into her computer and place the book onto the World Wide Web?

FAIR USE? If the professor placed the book on reserve in the library, the use would be considered a fair use. However, if the professor placed the book on the Web, then the use is not a fair use. Placement on the Web allows unlimited access to the book. This would affect the copyright holder's public distribution of the book.
