      Is Birbari back in print? I first got a copy of this book when I was an
      exchange student in Italy (nearly 30 yrs ago, when it was in first
      edition)
      and someone "borrowed" it. That it never came home brought me to the sad
      determination that I wasn't going to let people borrow my books and walk
      out the door, too. Borrow them at my house, sure. Don't take them away.

      But I digress. Birbari's method is much like our own--look at pictures
      long enough and then test a theory by draping.

      What is ILL?
