This book is still focused on the 1.1 stuff, but when the time comes to use a class
you haven't used before or maybe the method of a class you haven't used before, this book
can't be beat. Not only does it have thorough descriptions, but it gives examples for
every method. That's something you don't find in the javadocs! This book covers the non
GUI core library: io, lang, math, net, text and util.(trailboss Jan 2000)

This book covers Java 1.1, which has been obsolete for, uh, probably 10 years now. Are you looking for an introduction or a reference?

The class libraries are huge by now, so it'd be hard to put it all in one (or even two) books. You could check out "Java in a Nutshell" and "Java Examples in a Nutshell" instead.

No. It is copyrighted, so even though it's outdated, if you want it, you need to buy it.
