How might I obtain images or facsimiles of the first and last page of the very first German edition of Wittgenstein's Tractatus?

I want to find decent-quality images (not necessarily pristine or exact, jut not especially blurry, tiny, or heavily pixelated) of the very first and last sentences of Wittgenstein's Tractatus -- and I want them to be from the very 1st German edition ever published. I've found a few possible candidates via Google image search, but nothing that indicates whether these are from the 1st edition.
I realize this probably a pipe-dream, but any suggestions short of buying the book from a rare book dealer (way out of my price range) would be greatly appreciated.
