I have found several out-of-print books related to sewing at www.abebooks.com. As I was reading a book review here (Encyclopedia of Sewing Techniques) I checked to see if it was available at that site and it was- for $5.63 so yes, I ordered it! The books are usually used but I care more about the content than the appearance. I recently found 2 Claire Schaeffer books there- both dedicated to nothing but pockets and I quickly saw that they will become great design tools for me in the future. So if you haven't been able to find a book in the usual places try abebooks.com. They even have old issues of Threads magazine- I just came across one from 1989!
