The first New York Times Best Seller List

How can I obtain an image (jpg/gif/pdf) of the first New York Times Best Seller List published on October 12, 1931. I checked timesmachine.nytimes.com which has full-paper scans but it's NYT subscribers only. I checked databases like ProQuest through my library but they only have select articles and not this one.
