This is one of the missing volumes from the new OVO archive reflected at the Hermetic Library, and I’ve got permission from Trevor to make it available! I’ll add that to my to do list and get to it when I am able, but these are hard to get nowadays so I’m glad I was able to find this one. There’s still some others that I’m missing from the archive, so I’d love to hear from anyone with the old digital files saved on some ancient hard drive somewhere, or to talk with someone who’s got the physical issues and would be willing to share.
