Back in the late 70's, when the PDP 8 was already getting long in the
tooth, a friend
and I built PDP-8 clones using the Intersil 6100 chip.  (The museum has my
PDP-8 clone
in their collection.}  We also copied every bit of PDP-8 documentation we
could.  Because I never throw anything out, but want to make it so my son
doesn't have to get the extra large dumpster when I go, I recently discoved
a book box full of PDP-8 documentation.  Most of it is 8 1/2 x 11, except
for the first two items.

Some of this stuff is original Digital Equipment Corp publications, some is
that is noted for each item below.  There are multiple copies of a few of
the documents, also noted below.

Also, there is one (1) pdp-12 document in the collection (a photocopy).

All these documents are in excellent shape, especially since they've been
in a box in my basement for 30 years, and in the same box in a different
basement for 5 years prior to that.

The museum (a.k.a, Evan) gets first dibs.  After that -- I dunno, depends
on how much interest there is.
