Our friend Roland Viviers has scanned this entire volume and kindly sent us the images which have been reassembled in PDF format. This book is currently out of print and is being reproduced here for educational purposes only:

…all of our gratitude must go to Sorrell and Narayan, whose wonderful book/tape brings at the same time intellectual understanding and artistic enchantment (and is of great help to us westerners to understand some subtleties of raga). This book really doesn’t deserve to be forgotten as it is.
