Hello all... I'm looking for some really obscure Aikido books:

Aikido: A Supplement to Dojo Training (by Jeffrey Baygents, published in 1981 by Benefield and in 1996 by Aiki Press)

Aikido (no author listed, but published in 1999 by Ramboro Books)

^^^ I know the above books were published ^^^

vvv This one below I'm not sure about, but some references exist vvv

Aikido, The American Way (by Andrew Crawford, publisher and date unknown)

It goes without saying that I would like to acquire copies of these books, or in the case of the latter listing, some confirmation that the book really does exist. If you've got any of them, but want to keep them, I would appreciate a cover scan and a brief synopsis to add to the AJ Bibliography.

Thanks, and Happy Holidays to all!

Aikido, The American Way is at Arizona State University Library (http://worldcat.org/wcpa/oclc/22606409?page=frame&url=http%3A%2F%2F129.219.110.86%2Fsearch%2Fo22606409&title=Arizona+State+University&linktype=opac&detail=AZS%3AArizona+State+University%3AAcademic). Apparently it's a thesis presented in partial fulfillment of the requirements of the Honors College, Bachelor of Arts, Arizona State University, 1989.

Aha! A college paper... No wonder the few references I've seen are so vague. Good catch, Ted. Thanks for the info!

Miku-sanThanks, mate... I do have the numbers. But in five years of daily searching, I have never seen a copy for sale anywhere. Bummer!

Thanks, Michael. And if you could get me a cover scan and a one or two line summary, I can complete the bibliography listing over on AJ.
