Dealing with a commercial printer is going to be a huge pain and most would probably turn you down because of your low volume. The ones that would give you a quote are going to ask a TON of very specific questions -- what software you're doing the layout in, in what size and resolution do you plan on supplying your images, what kind of binding do you want, what kind of paper stock, etc. I used to deal with book and magazine printers all the time and getting what you want is going to drive you to madness.
The best bet is probably to lay the book out yourself and go with a boutique "self-publisher" like this:
MisterSmith, Thanks for the replies and effort. I will look in to your suggestions.
Just recently I got an Eliza Frye book from a KICKSTARTER program. The book looks VERY good. So, I am also looking int the publisher she used, www.sheridan.com/ .
They have a print on demand, where you can get 1-500 books. So that fits my 100 book limit. And they also have the "regular" printing method, but the minimum is 250. I am willing to do 250, my OCD just likes the number 100 better.
