OT: Need address in Melbourne

I'm hoping one of our readers from Australia can locate an address and perhaps a telephone number for me. There is an out-of-print book that I need to get a copy of for someone who really needs it. In 1997, I purchased several copies, gave two to the library, others away to individuals and kept one for myself. Apparently, I loaned mine to someone and it has not been returned; it's the only missing one of the "library" of support books I kept for reference. A search for the ISBN brings up primarily the pages on which I posted the book information and others who copied the book information to their own web pages, but nothing to anyone who has the book (they all have no copies).
Because it's not available through Powells, Barnes & Noble or amazon.com, the publisher seems to be the last route to finding one (other than the sheer luck in stumbling into one at a small used book store which is highly unlikely). The publisher appears to still be in business as I found a book they published in 1999 (out of the 228 listed on the web when I searched their name which is where the little location information I have came from). As you might imagine, the many hours spent on this have led only to frustration. I was really hoping the publisher might have a web page; if so, I haven't found it.
Here is the information I have for the publisher (without the book, I cannot look in the book).
Publisher: Hill of Content Publishing Company Pty Ltd.
Possible address: 86 Bourke Street Melbourne, Victoria Australia
If anyone can be of any help either verifying the information, giving accurate information or a telephone number, I would very much appreciate it.
Thank you.

Thank you, Morris, very much for the information. I have sent them an email from each of my two accounts and will write to them if I hear nothing. For some reason, my cell phone doesn't reach their phone number, an issue I'll address during our (North America) business hours.
It's unlikely I would have found them without your help since I had no idea they were purchased by another company. Sometimes, when it's very important to get the information, we don't always remember all the ways of locating it.
Again, thank you, more than you can know.

Not all cell phone plans are set up to allow international dialing, for anti-fraud reasons. Try from a land line, or with a prepaid international calling card, if other means don't work.
Godd luck.

I track down out of print books every once in awhile. I usually don't have a lot of problems doing that, tho I can't always afford what people want to charge for them. But, I always know what the book title is. I couldn't find any mention of that. Do you think that would help?
