Except for a really tiny percentage of unique (or really scarce)
manuals, all these hoards contain mostly the same stuff. HP, Tek, and
the military printed huge quantities of manuals - far beyond the
number of actual pieces of equipment.

Last year, when I cleaned out the Radio Research library (roughly 18
pallets and gaylords) worth, I certainly found some very scarce docs
for test equipment, but by far most of it was the same old same old.
