[78-L] Victor sleeves advertising specific issues

Again; here are worlds to be discovered.
As I do it with Windows 8.

1- click lower link. V-4062 opens, with small label scan marked "sold".
2- click on the scan and you get the original auction. This has a rather large scan, with "mouse over"below. And below this scan + remark are 6 (SIX) thumbnails, of which the last 2 are the sleeves (this not a memory of a dream, but they are before me).
3- if I put the mouse on a thumbnail, this will be enlarged as the (large) scan.
4- when I put the mouse on the large scan, it becomes very large. And can be saved (ca. 1600x1600).

On my Windows XP laptop, with an older Internet Explorer version, everything goes a little difficult, as explained (below).
1- click lower link. V-4062 opens, with good label scan. "Mouse over..." and 4 (FOUR) thumbnails below.
2- if you move the mouse over the label, the legend "Mouse over..." becomes "Click to view larger image AND OTHER VIEWS (my caps)".
At the same time you see at right the zoom-in.
3- To get this very large scan, I have to click at the square-border position when the hand appears. Possibly you can click everywhere if you have Windows 7.
4- When clicked right, you get the label scan at its largest. Below this huge scan are several thumbnails, i.e. the 4 already known, PLUS all others made (in this case the 2 sleeves). 
5- To see these 6 thumbnails, you have to move the mouse to the lower right or left NEXT to the scan. The, if you keep the mouse there for a second, the thumbnails appear over the bottom of the large scan and you can click on them.

DOES THIS WORK? If not, tell if I will mail the sleeves to the private address.
Well now it's time for some beer...
And if it doesn't work you will see how much you are missing with old software (as I experienced for 2 years before updating).

>> ("mouse over label to zoom" / "click to view larger image").
>> With current software, you will see all available scans; 6 in this case, though before enlarging there were (maybe) only 4.
>> If you use old software, like windows XP, put the mouse-arrow on the label scan, and you will see a square.
>> move the arrow to the border of the image, and click when - at the border - the arrow changes into a hand.
>> then you get the image enlarged.
>> when you place the mouse at lower right next to the enlarged image, you will see at the bottom all available 6 images, upon which can be clicked.
>> the last 2 images are the sleeve.
>> When I replaced XP by Windows 8/8.1, everything was enlarged with simple clicks, without dragging the arrows etc.
>> If it doesn't work, I can mail the sleeve scans if you want.
