I work outside the UK and every once in a while need a quick reference check on a work not available in the library system here. While I can find 95% of these online these days, I've got one today that's proving intractable. If anyone's planning to work in the National Library of Scotland / Trinity Dublin in the next few days, can I ask you to check it for me? Shouldn't take more than five minutes of your time. You will earn my eternal thanks and good karma in abundance.

Does it need a physical visit? I'm affiliated to a UK university but working from home. PM me if any use

Probably. There's an electronic edition on Jstor but my (big) library doesn't have access to it. I'll post a link here just in case:

have you tried Sci-hub? that has lots of papers free.

your local university library should be able to do an inter-library loan but it might take a few days.

Ah yes JSTOR just told me "Your institution does not have access to this book on Jstor". Which is annoying as it looks interesting. Guess that's the same for you. Sorry!

No joy on scihub. I could do an ILL but from experience it'll take weeks if not months rather than days.

I seem to have access to that electronic version spinassienne - what do you need? PM me if you prefer.

Yes, I have just followed your link and can download PDFs from that publication. PM if you need help
