Oh, maybe an inch, inch and a half thick, I'm thinking it was 5"x10" ?
standard "smaller than letter-size" paperback book.  I think they wanted
$10; I can go back tomorrow and check.  I'll pick up two of them (I
know they had at least 3-4 copies..)  Copyright date was 1976 or 77 if I
remember correctly.

computers once I had the money and storage space (and an understanding
wife), years ago.  You're one of my unofficial heroes. 8-)

Is this the system that was rescued at great effort from Lockheed a year or
more ago?

BTW, back to rescue topics - I've got a PDP-8/A, or at least parts of one (?)

Anybody up for the challenge?  Sorry, its way too heavy to pack or ship..
