    Chaim H,

    The sefer is available in practically all Jewish libraries (I dont mean batei medrashim) including the NY Public Library on 42nd street and YIVO on W. 16th, and in all major universties (Haravard, Yale, Columbia etc..).

    I think my great aunt sent them out to all these places when she reprinted the sefer in the 50’s.
