Adobe Acrobat 7 for Windows XP reports the above PDF document is 16.5 x 
11.7" in size, and it is just a lossy-compressed bitmap, without vector or 
font info. Is that what you intended? Is this your original layout or was 
this scanned in from an existing print? I only have a US letter-sized 
printer (8.5 x 11 inches) but for what it is worth, when asked to print 
just page 1, Acrobat 7 did print out the first page correctly (the one that 
is shown pixellized in your PNG example)
