In cases like this it's always worth also checking COPAC, which is a
catalogue comprising not only the British Library catalogue but a bunch of
others in the UK and Ireland (including Oxford and Trinity College Dublin).
It tells you the titles and which of the member libraries holds it, which I
find invaluable in my own research. Anyway, on a number of occasions a
search there has thrown up titles that were not to be had from the BL, even
though it's a copyright library. The COPAC URL is If you don't know it, check it out.
