 Does anyone have a copy of the book: Little, E. L. and F. H. Wadsworth
1964. Common Trees of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.  Agricultural
Handbook 249, USDA Washington.  I would like to buy a copy English or
Spanish Edition.  However, no bookstore checked has a copy new or used.
For those who are not familiar with this book, it is over 500 pages and
over 200 black and white plates of Caribbean and pan-tropical trees
showing identifying botanical parts.  It also describes fruit, 
size, shape, edibility, ..; tree morphology, common names in 
different countries, distribution etc plus other properties 
such as insecticidal use.  In 1964 it cost $4.25, but i would
be willing to pay somewhere around $20-$30 depending on the condition.
