Tschichold's Penguin Compostion Rules

Can anyone please tell me where I can find Tschichold's Penguin Compostion Rules (set-out in the 1950's), web-based or in a specific book?

I know that the rules are in McLean’s first book about Tschichold as well as issue 49 of Baseline Magazine.

I too am looking for a set of these rules, just the rules, it's a 4 page document I believe, but the only refs I can find are to out of print or expensive books, and I'd like to supply a class of pupils with them.

I'm surprised there isn't a set to download from Penguin.

Any help would be much appreciated.

...out of print or expensive books...

Ruari McLean's book, Jan Tschichold: A Life in Typography, is neither out of print nor expensive, since it's available in paperback.

You could also try a library.
