a c2c scan of a book in JVJ's collection, scanned by narfstar, edited and posted by builderboy.

The previous version of this file carried a cover from Heritage Auctions for a promotional variant of the book (with 'your laundry name' in place of the price and date). Error caught by Henry Andrews. The variant with the similar cover does not likely contain the same interior pages.
