The PDF floating around (bitsavers, elsewhere) is entitled "Computer
Lab Workbook", my mistake, but it's the size of DEC handbooks.  I've
seen a cover for the first edition dated 1968, and the PDF is of a
second edition, dated 1969.  What I'm looking for is a (probably)
later publication, approx 8.5"x11" and around 1/2" thick.  Totally
different contents.
