April 1941 (though the cover date is May!)

a c2c paper scan of JVJ's beautiful copy. Huge thanks to JVJ for his loan of this rare gem. Half and half in terms of resolution. I was swayed by my peers to step up from 200 ppi to 300 ppi in mid project. See if you can pick 'em out without looking at the scan names.
