If all else fails, perhaps the owning institution may copy or scan the section of the book you are interested in (aquatic beetles) and send it to you- a question for the St FX university librarians. In the public library system we have gotten copied portions of non-lendable reference materials for patrons. 

Doing a search online brings up several sites such as google books: http://books.google.ca/books/about/The_Beetles_of_Northeastern_North_Americ.html?id=A8y5QgAACAAJ&redir_esc=y which may or may not allow you to download the text. Many out-of-print books have been scanned and are available as PDF files. Another thing the librarians would be able to find out for you.

Of course, a complete print copy in hand is probably of most use to you.

It does seem to be uncommon; there aren't many locations recorded in Canada in WorldCat. The nearest copy is in the Reference collection at UNB (so not borrowable), but Carleton University has it in its library, and their copy can be borrowed.
