I managed to get my hands on a copy of the book the other day in a second-hand book shop. It really is a BRILLIANT book!!!

That it is! I have a copy on an indefinite loan form my local library. I'm hoping that they'll forget I have it!!

The taking of property with intent to permanently deprive the owner thereov= Larceny...
IMO do not encourage or condone such behaviour

Nor should you. And as you've pointed out under the Larceny Act of 1916 my intention to keep the book is illegal and I shall return the book with the greatest of haste. (Even though it is a really good book!)

Guys, I too have a copy of the book. I bought it directly form the publisher. They have a second-hand store that they sell returns or end-of-runs at a discount price. I belive I got the last one. This was last year.
Funnily, tho', previous to actually buying it, I got a copy from the local library. Wishing a copy but not wanting to "borrow it indefinitely", I spent a night scanning it. I have it on disk too, which is handy for close-up detail work when I am modelling a kit based on the Air Corps. So far I've done a Hurricane 1, IIc, a Seafire, a Vampire and am currently working on a 1/48 scale Spitfire mkIX two-seat trainer and a 1/48 scale Fouga Magister.

Any body want a copy of the disc??

Then maybe I should contact your local library and tell them where their book went to.
Nothing more petty than petty theft.
I copied the book for my own use, then obtained a proper copy.
No need to get snotty, JoeyD.
People in glass-houses and all that..........
