Dear Wayne:
 
To acquire a copy of Golding's Ovid you should try two on-line out of
print book services; 1) Advanced Book Exchange  www.abebooks.com or 2)
Bibliofind  www.bibliofind.com.   I am a used book dealer in Washington
DC and I have handled perhaps 15 copies in the last ten years.---Carlo
Parcelli, Alphaville Bookshop
P.S. The translation is quite worthy of Pound's lavish assessment.
