The book you describe sounds like the "Revised Handbook for Boys" copyrighted
in 1940. You can find the exact printing date on about page 561 in the
Appendix, Section B entitled "Brief History of Scouting".
Monetarily, the book is probably worth only a few dollars since it lacks a
cover and a few pages, but take a moment to read some of what's in the book,
because that is where the real value is.
