Sean Bass, are you still watching this thread? Still looking for a copy of Meta-Chess? I have good news and bad news for you.

First, the good news. I own a copy of Meta-Chess, and I don't need to go hunting for it. I've got full access to it. :-)

Now the bad news.

  1. The book wasn't bound 100% correctly. There are a few places where a page is in the wrong place or missing completely. The book came that way. You might need both Jean-Louis Cazaux's copy and my copy to reconstruct a complete book.

  2. Some pages are slightly stained along one edge. The book did NOT come that way. Public service announcement: never leave a book (or anything else, really) on the floor of your car. Car fluids can leak and seep up through the carpet. O.O

  3. I'm pretty busy these days; I'm a college professor doing remote teaching. Not much time for mailing or digitizing things. Plus, I'm pretty attached to this book; not sure I'd want to give it up. Digitizing it? Could work. I'd normally say "what about copyright", but John William Brown might not mind his work being preserved if he's not selling it anymore.

Long story short: your quest isn't over, but at least you now have a second lead. :-) We can talk over email; my email address is in my profile.
