best bet would be to contact the author Paul Howard or the Gold Coast Lapidary Club

This firm is currently out of stock but might be able to advise when they have new stock - this web site also identifies the ISBN of the book and it may help you chase it up with publishers. https://thegemshop.com/products/fossicking-for-queensland-agate

this web site https://trove.nla.gov.au/work/9536340 states that Paul's book is a "Hardcover is a limited edition of 1000 signed and numbered copies." so it may not be re published.

Hi pito, my copy is paperback and unsigned. I think you'll find it still around. I think the reason it's out of stock on most sites is the fact that it was published in 2005.  Contacting Sir Paul or the Gold Coast club as per Jimnyjerry's advise, would be the safest way. Worth looking for though.
Common sense isn't exactly common

Yes you are right - my copy is also a "soft cover" - I noted that the Trove web site also listed 2 ISBN numbers - I agree with you contacting the Gold Coast club is his best bet which he can do via http://goldcoastlapidaryclub.com.au/contact/ which gives email address, phone number and physical address
