Hello, I've just today secured purchase of an original 4BSD manual and papers set and
a copy of what I believe is the V6 papers set as well. Of note amongst the tabs I could
read from the pictures of the Berkeley binder was a section of fonts that I don't
think I've seen before named the Berkeley Font Catalog. I did a bit of searching
around and didn't find anything matching that on first inspection re: scanned and
source-available BSD doc collections. Anyone got the scoop on this?
Either way, once these arrive in the mail in I'll try and see what the delta might be
between these and the current sources in V6 and 4BSD stuff on the archive. They're
from the collection of an emeritus professor on the east coast, and I'm not sure if
they represent unmodified docs shipped from Bell and Berkeley or have local modifications.
In any case, his son said they'll be going through more material soon and are liable
to turn up more UNIX stuff, so I'll keep folks posted if I come into possession of
anything else particularly spiffy.
