I took high resolution photos of each page before I sent them to Europe. I
can send copies if that is legal and anyone is interested.
Given that the Lions book was republished for anyone to purchase a few
years back (I bought a copy, as well as having a samisdat photocopy),
I see no reason why they couldn't be freely distributed. Maybe even
added to the archives, if Warren agrees.
Yes, it's freely available now, as of about 2002. You can download it
. My question
related to a discussion about its copyright status when it was
written, and how it was published. Warren's photos conveniently show
the title page (with dedication by Lions himself) with the text

Since the release of the Ancient Unix license in 2002, this no longer
applies, of course.
