Do you mean publication - or printing? Both very different things - but the info of both should be given on the 'impressum' page before the title page at the front of the book. If it's not there, I guess it's a case of contacting the publishers?
If a book is published in the United Kingdom (including books first published abroad but later published in the UK), the law requires that a copy is placed in the British Library. So the British Library integrated catalogue should contain details (including the place of publication) of every book ever published in this country:

See if you can find the book on AbeBooks. Booksellers on that site usually list the publisher and their location, and the edition, of any book they're selling.
