Looking for a copy of a rare book for a present to a professor!

I'm looking for a place to find a rare copy of a theological text as a present for a retiring professor.

One of my favorite professors is retiring this year, and I thought I'd try to score a rare copy of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin's "The Divine Milieu" or "Hymn of the Universe" as a retirement present for her (or St. Therese of Lisieux's "Story of a Soul"). It'd be great to get it in French (the native language), as she's fluent, and hardcover is a necessity. I've looked on ebay, but I couldn't really find anything; any suggestions for sites / stores to look? I live in upstate Connecticut, but could travel within a couple hours for it if necessary. Thanks in advance!

Try Abe Books. They seem to have copies of both books.

Often the cheapest place to buy French books if you are based in the US is Amazon.ca because shipping costs are a lot less. They have both books in English and French.
