martin: Have youby any chance a book called The One Great Problem? I say a book, but it may be only a pamphlet.
BOOKSELLER.: No, sir,it' s out of stock. We could get it to order for you if it’s out of print?
M.: And if it's out of print?
B.: Then I'll make Inquiries and letyou know if we hear of a second-hand copy.
m.: D' you keep Spanish books?
B.: No, sir; they're rather out of our line.
M.: None at all?... Then I must try somewhere else, I suppose.
Where's the likeliest place to get them?
B.: It's a matter of opinion, but I should think your best plan by far would be to go to Brochet's in Leicester Square.
M.:... Have you a good edition of Boswell's Johnson?
B.: Yes, sir: how'll this one do?
M.: It's very dear. I should have thought it'd have been about half that
B.: Well, sir, there's no getting over the fact that printing and paper have gone up like everything else the last few years.
m.: Yes, that's the worst of it... (On reflection.) No, I think the smaller one'll answer my 'purpose; it's quite good enough for me.
B.: I'll have them packed up to go by parcel post.
M.: Oh! You needn't bother to send them; I may as well take them with me.
B.: Just as you like, sir.
