Kevin is right, I’ve looked for this book myself. Is there any chance that Rod could arrange to make the chapter in question available once more? Would some website host it? I’d be happy to take it on to skeulantavas.com if copyright could be sorted out at no, or only small, charge.

Nance was not, in my view, a good linguist. Read Rod Lyon’s chapter ‘Medieval Romantic or Language Visionary’ in Peter Thomas and Derek Williams, Setting Cornwall on its Feet (Francis Boutle 2007) ISBN 978 1 903427 34 7 and you can see what Caradar thought of Nance as a linguist.

I am still at an utter loss as to why Cornish revival was not just simply a continuation of the fantastic work Nance did.
