The author was the Director of the Slate Technology Center in Galicia, Spain (still is?). This book is not published in the US. We have a very limited number of English language copies available at the Slate Roof Training Center here in western PA. This books covers all aspects of slate roof installation: valleys, flashings, hips, cones, towers, spherical shapes, facades, metal and concrete structures. When our limited supply is gone, we don't know whether we will be able to get any more copies.
