Any good used book store will do a search for you for a minimal fee,
though at any given time there may not be a copy available. So make
friends with the proprietor, mention the name George Kelly at every
opportunity, and make sure he/she has your phone number in the Rolodex.
Also, ask your friends and relatives in other cities to check their used
book stores. I found Clinical Psychology and Personality quite by chance
here in Portland, but had no luck with TPofPC until I thought to ask my
mother to check the stores in Ann Arbor. She found it in one day, the two
volumes in different stores, which perplexed the owners to no end, since
they don't usually buy partial sets. Persistence pays.

Good luck,
