Have you posted pics anywhere? I'm thinking about getting a local print shop to spiral bind a bunch of old scans and I'd like to see what you came up with.

Here are some photos of Volume 1:

The only slight disappointment is with the lamination. I was expecting it to be a hard-wearing protective covering like you find on ID cards, but it's more of a thin glossy finish. It looks great though.

Thanks, those look superb! The covers and pages look very professional. That's what I had in mind to have done locally.

As far as the lamination, I guess you mean the book covers? I remember in the 1980s I had found a supply of plastic sheet with glue on one side that was meant to be used to cover softbound books. It worked great, I wish I could find it again. It was thick and protected the whole outside of the book and was easy enough to apply and trim. I also remember I loaned a favorite book that I had covered with this stuff to a coworker who lent it to someone else without asking me and I've never seen the book since.

It ain't OVER 'till it's 2 PICK

We covered that topic at least once before (http://www.hpmuseum.org/forum/showthread.php?tid=384&pid=2889) already.

Sorry for the delay folks. The postage materials got lost.

The manuals are now in transit. Unless you're from Norway. In which case, I'll post your set in the next day or two.

For some reason, I have an extra pair of Volume 1s. If anyone would like to buy one of these (£8 + postage), please PM me.

Reminds me of those extra screws I end up with when putting together a toy for my son -- without ever reading the manuals. :-)

Maybe you should hold them for a bit just in case, for some reason, someone receives a pair of Volume 2s. ;-)

The thought crossed my mind. :-)

However, I weighed all the packages to check the Volume 2s were evenly distributed.

These arrived this morning and caused considerable amusement at my workplace. They look great! Thanks for organising this. Wouldn't it be helpful if HP had a service like this already set up, for those people wanting printed manuals? Since they haven't, thanks again.

Certainly it would be helpful if HP ...

Alas, HP prefers not to do it Sad

Totally agree with the above. Looks good, lies flat on the table and already taken into use to find a print command for my new 82240b printer! Smile

Thanks again,

Cheers, Terje

Agreed, very nice job, thank you Shaun for your work making these available.

Seeing the size of them in print does emphasise just how much I still have to learn about RPL!

Any chance of doing the same thing with the HP-50g User's Guide? I'd love to sit down on a golden beach with a copy of this and read it cover to cover!

Possibly, if there's enough interest. :-)

There's nothing like having a good old slab o' paper in your hands, right?
