Old Book was Historical Jewelry

I would like to acquire a copy of this book, depending on what I’d
have to do to get it:

Salin, Bernhard, 1861-1931. 
Die altgermanische thieronamentik, typologische studie Fber germanische 
metallgegenst Fande aus dem IV. bis IX. jahrhundert. Neue aufl.
Stockholm, Wahlstrfm & Widstrand [1935]	p. cm. 

There is a lot in this book about the gold-and-garnet jewelry we’ve
been discussing under Historical Jewelry. I got a chance one
afternoon decades ago to peruse it in the Library of Congress, when I
was too broke to have enough dimes to copy all I wanted to. Now I
want to OWN it. Not likely, but if anyone wants to get rid of
her/his extra copy, please let me know.

This site is incredible for finding out of print books. The site is

books on hand engraving and Rene Lalique which are my own passion.

Good luck

Wow! Now SIX people have found this for me. I must be the only

Never ordered anything from Sweden before.
