I've just received this announcement from Oak Knoll:

Oak Knoll Press and the British Library have given permission to the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB) to make available for non-commercial use a digital copy of their latest edition of the classic book ABC for Book Collectors by John Carter as revised by Nicolas Barker.

The link is here.
