  I've got the book in front of me, but thanks. I can scan the photo but
it's already been screened for printing and has very low resolution. Its
quality shines through nonetheless. Scanning is a last resort, though my
search has run on so long, perhaps that's the resort I've arrived at!

I'm not sure if you are trying to find a high-resolution copy of the book 
photo or if it would be good enough to find a copy of the book itself and 
then digitally scan in the photo from the book over. If you want a copy of 
hat book, the Internet used book stores are the place to go. For example, 
www.abe.com ("advanced book exchange") has 36 copies of the book ranging in 
price from about $6 to $30 depending on the book condition.
