When I ordered NESAT VIII from the Institute of Archaeology & Ethnology of the
Polish Academy of Sciences, they sent me their latest (2005) catalog.
Turnau's book on the history of knitting was listed as one of their
offerings, for 19 Euros plus 5 Euros postage. Now, the 5 Euros means that
they send it by the local equivalent of Media Mail (because my NESAT took
forever to arrive) but it is pretty cheap!
The Institute takes Master Card, VIsa, American Express and Diners Club
International. Or you can send them an International Money Order. (I don't
know if they will take an American check or not).
Their mailing address is
Institute of Archaeology & Ethnology of the Polish Academy of Sciences, AI
00-140 Warszawa, POLAND
Or you can e-mail them for more information at
bookshop at iaepan.edu.pl
If you need to pay by International Money Order, the catalog says to send it
BPH-PBK S.A. VIII O/Warszawa No. PL 28106000760000401030212753
The edition in question is the 1991 edition which is in English.
