I'm not sure whether I got what you want and don't have the book to
check, but I think the following should be a starting point to achieve
what you probably want:

sol = VsubnL + (V0 - VsubnL)*E^(-gsubL*t/c)

parameters = {c -> 10, gsubL -> 19, VsubnL -> -67}

Plot[Evaluate[Table[sol /. parameters, {V0, 0, 100, 20}]], {t, 0,
   5}, Frame -> True, Axes -> False, PlotRange -> All,
 ImageSize -> 500]
