There is indeed:

The Ultimate Asahi Pentax Screw Mount Guide, 1952-1977: Amazon.co.uk: Gerjan van Oosten: Books

But don't ask me where to get it

it is rarely sold in the auction site for high prices. Make a search in completed listings. The last one I saw was sold for about 150 USD in July.

Sorry, I didn't ever get it - but if you do a search of the marketplace here on PF, you can actually find some old listings. I note one copy sold for 35 EURO and one sold for 169 US Dollars(!!!).

So, like everything related to vintage cameras: If you really want it, then keep looking - and have patience!

Bummer.

Were they ready to do an international loan?

The Dutch Royal Library, Koninklijke Bibliotheek, has a copy.

Many libraries can, or at least get you a PDF scan of the book.
