Comment: Jeez, my edits are looking pale. Blame it on the printing. But you can easily post-edit any scan here for personal use at home.

Comment: Thank you Tilliban! I think your scan looks just fine. I prefer scans that represent what the actual book would look like in my hands rather than someone's attempt at a photoshop facelift. That said, the truly horrid printing on display here has me wondering if we should create a DCM award for the world's worst golden age print job! LOL

Comment: The fourth story, "The Envelope" features art that looks very similar to Harvey Kurtzman's early Weird Science stories "Jivaro Death." According to Comics.org, The artist was Charles Stern -- a former roommate of Harvey Kurtzman and a reason why this work resembles Kurtzman.
