Encouraged by higher powers I have made the entire King Wilson Book into a PDF.

 

It should be possible to download publicly for free, for private educational purposes.

 

Any difficulties, please PM me rather than clog up the post.

The king is dead, long live the King (Wilson).

 

Good work SF.

We would probably all have to chip in for that one; the prices are pretty steep.

You can get it from a library in the UK, presumably also in oz. You can also get a scan from a library in the UK, they gave me a quote at £63 or something. And you get to choose the edition.

I happened to see this book in a library today.  It's quite small and charming.  Thanks for the PDF.
