These are the responses I received. Thank you to all who responded.

1. Look again at Amazon:

-- available new and used.


My recommendation would be to find a copy of that book, by interlibrary loan
if necessary, or a used copy if not new, and go directly to the source. If
citing a (copyright-infringing?) reproduction of portions, then I would
recommend citing it roughly as follows:


Lottie L. Riekehof, The Joy of Signing [and publication data], as quoted in
[and here cite author, title, and any other info. about the booklet actually
used as the student's source].


2. I own a copy of Joy of Signing.  My copy would be MLA cited thus:


Riekehof, Lottie. The Joy of Signing, 2nd ed,  Springfield, MO: Gospel
Publishing House. 1987.

I think, though, that citing the Jones booklet would be sufficient, and that
Jones is citing her source.  That would be:


Jones, Karyn.  An Introduction to Sign Language.  N.p. N.d.


The N.p. and N.d. stand for "No place [of publication available]. No date
[of publication available].



3. cite the book that was used. Since the student used the spiral bound
examples, and not the original book, it would be inaccurate to cite the
original book
