    1. Hi David, They might be for sale, I am not sure. I think they are probably in the public domain and if you follow the link of which this is one https://archive.org/details/ccarl_000031 you could enlarge them until they are huge and then get an art printer to print them out for you. Those you could get framed if you like. And I think they are very interesting too. Thanks for commenting, Sarah.
