Just out of curiosity, is this actually a manual or a workbook? What I have
is the "Computer Lab Workbook", copyright 1968, with a picture of the lab on
the front with what looks to be other Dec equipment in the background. That
logic trainer is one cool piece of equipment, and I have been casually
looking for one for 20 years or so. Back in 1971 or so, IIRC DEC also
offered a free Introduction to Digital Logic course (paperwork only, no
hardware) in about a 20 section or so mail-in type of course. I took it and
still have the course notes they sent somewhere.
