I am using linux not OSX and as with others Gimp will not open the posted
NxNW_1959.pdf.  It does open in a linux pdf editor and apart from the creator,
nothing unusual, fonts are nothing spaecial for example.

A straight save produces a pdf which does open in Gimp. A slight difference in
file size  orig: 585,860B vs new: 558.823

Usual problem editing PDF in Gimp, it is rasterized, A better bet might be
LibreOffice which does open the original file.
