Different communities have different rules on, so-called, identification questions. Some have specific tags and guidance for them, and some prohibit them explicitly.
In this case, it is a special type of identification: reference identification.
As per this discussion on Physics SE Meta, such a question might be on-topic on Physics SE with the tag "specific-reference". My own judgment would be: the more the book you are looking for corresponds to a specialized physics reference, the more the question is likely to be well-received. This paragraph strictly talks about books on physics.
In general, for book/reference identification, consult the guidance of the thematic community, check relevant tags ("resource recommendation", "reference-request", etc), and check for the existing questions of such kind. Such questions might be on-topic. Otherwise, a question on Literature SE might be a viable choice as per @Mart Kirby's answer.
