I am trying to get my hands on a copy of a textbook
that was published by Harcourt Brace Jovanovich in 1985 and is now out of
print and permanently out of stock, acc. to HBJ's phone rep. It's called
_Writing Step by Step_ and is by Robert de Beaugrande. Some of you may be
familiar with his 1984 article that sets out a little bit of a methodology
for teaching grammar concepts and analysis skills using the English
competence of the students, "Forward to the basics: Getting down to
grammar" fom 1984's CCC journal. The book's ISBN # is 0155982583.

I have not found it in any of the U of CA online library catalogs, nor the
Cal State libraries that I can access online, nor the Library of Congress
(though I may have botched that search!)

If anyone knows of a source of this book, or has a spare copy they could
send me (I will take very good care of it!), please get in touch.
