None of this may apply to you, but assuming that only limited and information is needed, on my budget I would try a couple of things.
First, if a lookup in the book is all you need you might try asking on the Rootsweb Mayflower mailing list. Someone on the list is likely to have it, and might be able to send you limited copies from it.
If that didn't work I'd try interlibrary loan. I suspect that would be difficult for two reasons. First, it might not circulate at some libraries, and second, probably not many libraries have it (WorldCat lists only 8, although there would be more--search here http://www.worldcat.org/ Out of those you'd have to find one that had a reciprocal loan arrangement with your library. But your librarian can tell you.
While you might not be able to get the book, a library might send photocopies of a very limited number of pages (copyright considerations) if you knew what pages you need. That could be a problem, of course. How much "research" a library would do for you would vary. If you were lucky, and if this is what you need, you might find a library where someone would check the index and copy the relevant pages for you--such services are sometimes available though not advertised. But that takes time, and time is money, and libraries are typically underfunded with tight budgets and have their own patrons to serve first, so as much as they would like to help, sometimes they can't. But then, often they can.
