Is this legal?

Well, if it is, can someone scan the whole(or the important parts)book of the gregg diamond jubilee edition? I lost my copy(probably left it at another city and I can’t go back to get it!). If it isn’t legal then disregard this topic.
I really, REALLY want to study again! I can’t buy from the internet because my parents won’t allow me and it seems that I can’t find any thrift shop that sells a gregg manual.

  1. Nope, it's not legal.  That was produced in the 70s, IIRC, and you would have to go back to the 20s or 30s, forget which, to find books that are now in the public domain and could legally be copied. 

    I don't know how old you are, but could you ask your parents to order it for you themselves from one of the established used book sellers online?  (
    abebooks.com, alibris.com, elephantbook.com, etc.)

  2. If you search for the book(s) on abebooks.com, you can narrow it down by selecting a country and then a city. It's possible you could find a book available in your city — they have DJS texts all over the US, then you could go to the store and buy it.   Good luck.

  3. Make sure to check local libraries. If you're a college student, check to see if your university has a shared-library deal with other universities. On the west coast, I have access to the libraries of 20+ universities through the Summit system. And there's always Inter-library loan, which might cost you a little bit of money.

    Another solution is to just post a request here for someone to mail you their old copy. I bought a DJS manual out of curiosity a while ago, but since I'm a Simplified writer, I ended up sending it to a learner in Canada who made that very same request. That's also how I got my Simplified manual and dictionary: through the generosity of the people on this forum!

    If I still had the manual, I'd send it to you, but you'll have to find someone else this time. I'll gladly be a penpal, if you don't mind my Simplified writing 🙂 I wouldn't be able to teach you by mail since I'm not famililar with what principles DJS doesn't have that are in Simplified.

    Best of luck.
