Hi Jackie,

I’ve done a lot of sleuthing for used and out-of-print books on the
web. Sometimes it takes persistence to find what you want (i.e. a
pristine copy of Oppi Untracht’s massive tome for $65), but you can
always find it in the end.

My favorite sites for used and out-of-print books aRe:

I checked all three of these for the book you want, and found a
slightly different spelling for the title and a different spelling
than you gave for the author’s name.

None of the places I looked have the book at the moment, but Powell’s
(a HUGE used bookstore in Portland, OR) has a notification service
that will notify you when then get a copy if you ask them to. Go to
the Powell’s site and search for:

Basic Wax Modeling: An Adventure in Creativity Hiroshi Tsuyuki

I would also suggest that, when you search these sites, you try
various searches (author, main title, key words). Your book may be
there, but the author’s name or the title may be spelled differently
from the way you think it’s spelled.

For what it’s worth, my favorite site for comparing prices on new
books is:

I’ve bought lots of books on-line from both large companies and from
small individual bookstores. Books have been shipped to me from all
over the US, Canada, and the UK, and I have never had a problem or a
complaint about service. I usually use a credit card, but the small
book-sellers will generally take checks as well, and they will hold
your book until your check arrives.

Tracking down those special out-of-print books can become an
addictive passtime. Good luck, and happy hunting!

Dear Jackie,

I don’t know about that one,. but try “Modeling in Wax for Jewelry and Sculpture” by Lawrence Kallenberg, published this fall by Krause
Publications. It’s at Barnes & Noble.
