I visited the exhibit today, and there was a reproduction of this book that included pages 63-64 (the part about king Faisel II which was ripped out of most of the copies). I was hoping to show it to a friend, but this copy also has those pages ripped out. Is there a copy of one of the books that still has those pages online somewhere?

thank you

Hi Ari, So glad you saw the exhibit. There was an issue with getting the PDF online and it's now up. You can view the document here: http://ija.archives.gov/content/340 The missing pages are PDF pages 42 and 43 (page numbers 73 and 74 in the text itself).
