Just for info I actually have the second edition dated Dec 1972. It was
fig 7.17 then as well, but on page 138. On page 86 there is a photo of
a two sided board with traces that look about 0.05" and on page 98 the
artwork for a typical MECL III board with 5 (yes five) layers. (still
can't understand why modern pcb vendors don't like doing an odd number
of layers.)

I still refer to it, and Andrew is right, in those days people,
including myself, did lay out their own boards with sticky black tape.
