HP Calculator Raw Scans

This Section features scans I've made of assorted documents other than Pictures or Brochures, such as booklets or bulletins. Most are part of my Project HAM, i.e., scans of 40+ year-old vintage documents not authored by me but which were sent to me back then, and due to their perceived rarity (even uniqueness right now) I'm making them available here.

I scanned most paper documents at 300 dpi, resulting in hi-res 2,552 x 3,508 PNG images, which were then converted to multi-page PDF documents with embedded OCR'd texts (e.g.: to allow for copy/paste operations). Some of them also include text pages with my own Notes, providing background info and extra details.

pdf HP Raw Scan - A Blackbox Handbook to Synthetic Programming Techniques (Full Scan)

(16 pages, 3.133.875 bytes)

A 16-page booklet by Phill Jury (PPC #5484) which was sent to me by John McGechie (PPC Melbourne Chapter) circa 1980, and which I've discovered recently among my 40+ year-old vintage materials so I thought it would be proper to scan it and upload it to this Section as well. Phill says:

"This book is designed to teach the person who has neither the time nor the inclination to learn how the 41C goes about carrying out various non-standard techniques, but explains in detail (step by step instructions), how to use these techiques."

(12 pages, 2.955.836 bytes)

This arrived as a thick 1977 letter from HP "sent to only a few HP-67 and HP-97 owners", encouraging us to take a very comprehensive survey and then send the completed questionnaire back to them. The large envelope included a one-page letter plus the survey's questionnaire proper, which consisted of 8 pages featuring 36 quite complex and detailed, very specific questions. Oh, and a return envelope as well. Includes Notes.
