Update 02/23/2021: I just found it on http://global.gmarket.co.kr/ ! Still interested if there is a place/person to buy from without international shipping. Thank you!

Hello, fellow Go enthusiasts!

I am searching for Volume 1 of Baduk Classics: The Art of Closing Guanzipu. Any help is greatly appreciated. I already have used copies of volumes 2-6 on order, so I need volume 1, not the entire set. Avoiding international shipping is preferred (I found a few Korean bookstores that sell the individual volumes, but even with google translate, I am not sure if they ship to the US or what the total cost would be). I am in Vermont, USA.

I know that there are free PDFs available of the entire problem set and many other/older editions of the problem set in Chinese and Japanese. Still, I am interested in the 2014 BadukTV English edition ISBN-13: 979-1185635156 to complete my collection. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Here are some of the places I have already looked online:

Powell’s Books is where I found used volumes 2-6, but volume 1 is out of stock.
https://www.powells.com/book/baduk-clas ... 1185635156

Amazon - I only found the entire set new, but I need volume 1.
https://www.amazon.com/Baduk-Classic-Ar ... 1185635157

Shop in Amsterdam - out of stock.
https://www.schaakengo.nl/goshop-keima/ ... g-volume-1

Shop in Paris sells complete set, but I only need Volume 1, also out of stock.
https://www.variantes.com/livres-jeu-go ... 80088.html

German shop - Volume 1 not available.
https://www.go-spiele.de/de/Guanzipu--e ... ende-.html

ebay.com - not found.

abebooks.com - nope.

thriftbooks.com - nope.

Anyone in the US willing to part with their copy or know of another seller?

Thank you for your time!

I found it in a Korean shop.

Hope you can find someone in the US who has the book for sale or someone who can help you buy the book from Korea. Good Luck.

Thank you! tchan001! I found a way to order in English on http://global.gmarket.co.kr/ so if I don't hear of any US sellers I should be able to get it from Korea for about $20 US.

BTW, I found your blog while searching for the book! Very nice!
