You can find them on amazon and ebay, but they are generally pricy ($70-$80).

If you wait, you can sometimes get one cheaper.

You will have better luck if you look for "LBSC His Life and Locomotives" if you search for the author Brian Hollingsworth. Lillian "Curley" Lawrence is the subject of the book, not its author.

I hope you have good luck finding a copy, they are fairly rare now and command high prices.

Personally I would suggest that you look for a copy of LBSC's Shops, Shed and Road (a.k.a. "The Live Steam Book") which was written by LBSC. Or any of his books covering the building of specific locomotives such as Maisie (a GNR 4-4-2) or Tich, a simple 0-4-0 contractor's locomotive.

While the Hollingsworth book is really interesting, it covers nothing about actual locomotive construction, so you won't find any technical information in it. You will find information about Curley and every locomotive he ever designed or built, including pictures of his actual locomotives.
