Engineering Column Analysis - The Analysis of Compression Members

(OP)
I am trying to find a copy of Engineering Column Analysis - The Analysis of Compression Members by William Mccombs for a while now. Any idea how to buy/find a copy of this book? Probably publisher and author are long gone... Any leads or tips much appreciated.

RE: Engineering Column Analysis - The Analysis of Compression Members

Sadly, the author Bill McCombs passed away about 10 years ago, and his wife not long after, so the publishing rights have evaporated AFAIK.
If you have any skill with google, you have probably found his Supplement on archive.org, but the Columns is not there.
I know someone who might have a copy. If you want, I could contact them on your behalf. Please let me know if that interests you.

I would be keen to acquire a copy at some point, I have found all of McCombs other work very useful.

For reference - this old thread covers the table of contents,

RE: Engineering Column Analysis - The Analysis of Compression Members

For things like this I usually see where it is available using WorldCat.

https://www.worldcat.org/title/engineering-column-...

Unfortunately in this case it looks like the only library copy known to WorldCat is in Germany:

https://www.worldcat.org/libraries/87413
https://www.tib.eu/de/suchen/id/TIBKAT:689363281/E...

But the contact info is there, if you get in touch the library might be able to arrange something with you.

Edit: under the last link, if you click on "order for a fee" they may be able to scan you a copy.
Edit Edit: Worldcat / Interlibrary Loan is extraordinarily useful - that's how I have acquired many rare books including stress intensity factors by Sih and Murakami.

I'd be very interested in getting hold of a scanned copy if anyone has one available.

Likewise, do you have a scanned copy of those books available?

I do have scanned copies but I received them through libraries under fair use associated with the public library system. They are still copywritten materials, so I would suggest you take the same approach as me.

Murakami is probably more difficult to track down, but it is not a periodical, so you could probably get it through ILL. I see you are from GB based on your profile. Sih should be available to you pretty easily depending on where you are:
