A 300 dpi all paper scan of a book in my collection. Scans and edits by me.

Please note that the book was originally published with the pages out of order in the Sub Saunders story (pages 5 & 6 mixed up), and I have presented them in the order they were printed. Hopefully, this will help make sense of the story!
