reprints, as they were originally printed by a small press and

Try Ruth Kern Books <http://www.ruthkernbooks.com/>(a needlework book
reseller), or a SCA-centric bookseller who carries a lot of tiny-press
books, and keep looking. (I think I got mine through Lacis, or maybe
Poison Pen, but it's been years.)
