I have an actual copy of this edition. The front and back pages of book are broken off but the pages are in excellent condition. I'm attempting to learn more about this book. I have had it in my possession for over 35 years. I found it at a flea market many years ago. If anyone has any information on this book, please contact me at my email address. jo.autrey@yahoo.com
