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
Solidarnosci 105
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.

Good luck!
