I agree that a bookstore is the best place to look for this. I purchased mine from Amazon… since, I also live overseas.
The only problem with going to a local USA library… unless you are a resident ‘most’ libraries won’t let you ‘check out materials’… however, if you have a friend that is a member of a library they could check it out for you to look at/use… and some libraries do have Xerox machines that you could use to make a copy of something- you usually have to pay 10c a page for copies.
However, it sounds like you’d like to own the book? Then, I’d purchase it… the book has some really great patterns in it.
IF you want to see what the book cover looks like… go to my name in ravelry and look in my ‘library’ … I think it has a photo of a child wrapped in something knitted??? Anyway, you’ll see the title of the book.
Also, if you go to Amazon.com ‘sometimes’ you can look through a few pages of the book…
