      Colombo Apothecaries (odd name for a publisher!) are no longer publishing
      it, but the Buddhist Cultural Centre in Dehiwala has brought out an issue
      of Parts I & II in a single volume, ISBN 955-9219-08-1. The BCC's website
      is at http://www.buddhistcc.com

      Like the BPS in Kandy, the BCC is a not-for-profit organization and most of
      their publications cost peanuts. They have done a lot of valuable work in
      re-issuing specialist books of high quality that commercial publishers
      won't touch because of a low anticipated readership.

      Best wishes,
