I would like to publish the information contained in this book.This book contains information of plants with anti-cancer properties.  The information appears to have come from a plant-screening program of the National Cancer Institute.  It is about all that is left of the publicly available information on the program.  I would like to buy it, and publish it again.    The description from Amazon:"Impossibly rare volume in any condition. Not long after the book was published Quarterman Publications went out of business and Dr. Hartwell died. Most of the available copies were snapped up by science libraries. writes: "Plants Used Against Cancer was published in hardbound in 1982 by Quarterman Publications, Inc. (last address of record: 5 South Union Street, Lawrence, Massachusetts 01843). We went to great lengths to contact any remnants of Quarterman in early 1993 -- to no avail. Their last phone number was (508) 689-0207, and the offices were in a structure known as the "Ere Mill Building." We could find no one who would admit knowing anything about the company in Lawrence. For the record, the book copyright page reads, "This work is a facsimile compilation of the serialization entitled, "Plants Used Against Cancer. A Survey" by Jonathan L. Hartwell which appeared in Lloydia in eleven installments between 1967 and 1971. The original text has been reproduced chronologically with the pages renumbered consecutively. A forward has been added to this edition." [by Jim Duke, dated January, 1982]".
