Search for Book out of print !

I am doing some research and need a copy of Peter Padfields book ( 1966 ) called " An agony of Collision " with dramatic details and photos . In particular i believe there is editorial about the sinking of the SHILLONG after collision with the Porofino Congo in the Gulf of Suez. Shillong was outward bound and was fully loaded with general cargo and some livestock on deck.

Thank you - Duncan ? Yes i have found several copies worldwide but most are below standard and have expebsive shipping costs about 10 on average. My research does not supprt those charges.
As you say there i s a copy available at Greens so i will approach them for details . Thank you for your kind response .
