Usually you can get phone books through your local phone company for a
fee. Otherwise, it's difficult to get phone directories from the
individual publishers outside your local area. Years ago I worked as an
account manager in a National Yellow Pages Representative for national
accounts. We had problems getting directories even for our patrons. They
could only get tear sheets. It was also difficult to get them for
ourselves and we were in the "business."
