Compucolor.org – Documents

Below are all the documents related to the Compucolor II that I have been able to obtain. There are a few books which I have and have scanned, but I'm holding off publishing them until after I contact the author for permission. If you happen to know the author or publisher of those books, please put me in contact with them.

If you have any other documents which are missing and are willing to share, please let me know. If you can do a good quality scan, just send the images or a PDF file; if you want to give or loan the document to me to scan, I'm happy to pay for shipping.
