I'm not sure why he specifically wants that book, but the classic
books on shellac are:

    Shellac and other Natural Resins
    B S Gidvani, Plastics Institute, London, 1954


    E J Parry, Pitman, London, 1935

for analytical data he should check in paint and varnish
publications. Unfortunately there appears to be a band with the name
'Shellac' so any netsearch keeps on turning up pop music information
