I may still have some old manuals from my college days where I used a Dec System 20. Would they be of interest to this collection? I can check tommorrow and post what I have (my son is asleep in the room they are in).

We're always interested in old manuals. When you post the list, we'll know if we have duplicates or not.

Thanks for thinking of us!

I came across some old DEC-20 and 1022 manuals a few weeks ago in my basement that I could have sworn I gave away a few years ago. I was going to offer them to Rich Troiano, but it seems that they would find a better home here... :-)
I'll post the list as soon as I am able to put the list together. -- Frank

I found the 3 manuals and one tape:

MacLisp (a homemade manual from my LiSP class)
Dec System 20 Fortran Reference Manual (real Dec manual)
Dec System 10/20 Algol Programmers Guide (reproduction)

Any interest?

I have the books "Introduction to DECsystem-20 Assembly Language Programming" by Gorin, "Introduction to DECsystem-10 Assembler Language Programming" by Singer and the TOPS-20 Monitor Calls Quick Reference manual. Those are probably pretty common, but if you guys want to borrow any of them, I am on Bainbridge Island, so it wouldn't be hard to get them to you.

I also have many old manuals - mostly Tops20. I have many of the system manuals. What do you do with them?

Presumably you have the old PDP-10 manuals? I've got a copy of the 1970 manual ("PDP10 Reference Handbook"), which covered the entire gamut: Hardware, operating system, utilities, etc. Later this expanded and fissioned into the Orange Book, Green Book, and Blue Book (I've got those too). After that, the subsequent versions exploded into a couple dozen manuals, many of which I once had, although probably not anymore.

Hey dbr,

I have what should be a complete set of the 18 or so white binders (not ready to donate it anywhere, but I do have them). I also have an old "phone book" for the 5.04 monitor calls, about the same generation as you. The white binders should be up to 7.04.-kby

I also have some old binders and manuals, however they're not in the best of shape. Is that a problem? Where do we send the stuff?

If you have a list which you can send to us (or post here), we can determine whether we already have copies. You might also check the Bitsavers archives (http://bitsavers.org/pdf/) to see if they have copies on-line there, in case we already have something on your list.

Thanks for thinking of us.
