Dear Brother Anthony,
     if the book you are after really is the one by Moose, from 1911,
and if in the meantime you haven't got hold of it either at Ehwa Women's
University or elsewhere, I may have a film be made from the 124
microfiches, as which the book is available here. Incidentally, Osgood's
book, too, is among our holdings, but it is likely also to be found at
places closer to you than Tuebingen. Let me know if you are interested
in having a copy of the Moose microfiches.
