Francis Dvornik books
« on: February 03, 2004, 07:41:21 AM »
Would anyone know where I could get my hands on "Byzantium & the Roman Primacy" and "The Photian Schism: History and Legend" without paying US$175 at Amazon.com ?

Thanks

Is that each or both? I had a look at abebooks.com and they were still quite expensive but not $175 each.

If you were in America I would say, Just get them from interlibrary loan and photocopy them--but I think you are in Australia, right? Do they have interlibrary loan there?

BTW, The last time I suggested that someone copy a book, someone got on me for copyright violations but I read the notice on our copy machine at seminary and it says that fair use allows for copying of materials (does not limit the extent, either).  It also says that the librarian has the discretion to intervene if fair use is being violated.

From my reading of the statue it is clear that fair use can't be violated if you make one copy of material for yourself for scholarly purposes and do not distribute it, becuase the statue also mentions the purpose of scholarly study as being a legitimate reason to copy a work.

Peter,

It's $175 for a used copy of "Byzantium and the Roman Primacy", the other seems to no longer be there but it was roughly the same price.

anastasios,

Yeah we have interlibrary loan, I'd like to have my own copy though as i'm a bit of a collector. If i were to make photocopies of all the books i wanted, i'd probably end up in a gulag.

The book on the Photian Schism was on abebooks for about $85.
