This listing is for the genuine, original 1978 IBM book, "IBM System/38 Technical Developments". The listing includes the book seen in the photos only. This 1978 book is extremely rare. Currently, there is no other copy for sale on the planet.I could not even find it in regular libraries. During my research, I did discover hard copies of the book in a couple of countries' national libraries, and a few more at some notable museums. I received the book, among other treasures from a man who was an programmer for IBM from the 60's to the 80's. "IBM System/38 Technical Developments" was written by over 50 IBM employees.
A few of them appear on IBM's all-time list of noteable employees. I usually deal in vintage electronics. The front and back covers have some light scratching/scuffing/marking from being in a bookcase and from age. There are no rips, holes, writing, creasing, or any other damage to the pages. The binding is in excellent shape, and all the pages are present.When the book is closed, a small mark shows up on the pages at the bottom of the book (photo 8). Also, there is a faint smudge on the inside of the back cover (photo 9). I should note that in picture 2, there is some glue peeking out on the bottom between the pages. The photos best represent the cosmetic condition of the 1978 publication "IBM System/38 Technical Developments".
