History of Sandy Creek Baptist Association 1768 to 1868

Does anyone know where I can obtain a copy of "A History of the Sandy Creek Baptist Association: From Its Organization in A. D. 1768 to A. D. 1868" by George Purefoy? This is a fascinating 300+ page book about the Baptist churches in Chatham County, Orange County and surrounding areas, giving a short history of each church,mentioning various members. I have read snatches of it on Books.google.com and have been trying to find a copy. It was reprinted in 1980 by Ayer Company Publishers. AYP (www.ayerpub.com)advised me that if they get enough back orders they can reprint the book. It lists on the Internet for around $35, but nobody actually has a copy to sell. This would be a great resource for anyone whose ancestors were associated with any of the Baptist churches in the area or anyone who is interested in local history. And, no, there is nothing in it for me except that I would like to see this book reprinted so that we can buy a few copies.
