It's also interesting to note that DEC themselves made copies of some
handbooks apparently. I've got two handbooks that are obviously copies and
bound with plastic spiral combs. When I asked about these a couple years
ago, I was told this was common. Of course the two I've got are of books
where the original actually has better paper if anything :^)
