I picked a few of these decades ago in NYC for a song, maybe 5 bones or less.
I remember pouring through stacks of 'em. Tons of different designs. Some of them were very nicely done for lithos - humerous, too. Others were totally cheesy with poorly executed designs and/or bad printining.

I still have a couple somewhere, I should search for them.

I was curious about the shop, here's a bit on it, don't know how accurate it is ...
=======================================

The Eden Hashish Centre was the largest of several legal storefronts in Kathmandu that provided quality hash and grass to the tourists. Mr. Sharma, the owner, opened two shops. The original location was at 5/1 Basantpur in the famous "Freak Street" hippy district, a location that ironically now is occupied by a bank. The second shop was located at 5/259 Ombahal, said to be in the Thamel area.

In late 1973, soon after the second Edenhash shop opened, threats of the loss of foreign aid from the American administration of Richard Nixon forced Nepal to outlaw hashish and marijuana. The two Eden Hashish Centres, the Central Hashish Centre and the others closed their doors and the pot and hashish business moved underground.
