Hello,
Thank you very much for your post.
The list of books I wrote seem to me very short. I am convinced there are more...

Then I’ll update the list

Thanks

RE: List of hp48-49-50 books/manuals/guides
The following link link is a scan of issue #59 of the EduCalc catalog from 1993 (courtesy of Jeff). There at a large number of HP-48SX books starting on page 59. Some of them may not be in this list.

Looking at these catalogs brings back a lot of fond memories. I ordered a lot of books from EduCalc and even visited the store occasionally. I went there in 1991 to buy my HP-48 SX and I believe Richard himself showed me that it had the latest ROM version (at the time). Check out the Goodies Disks on page 57. I bought them all. Available on 5-1/4" IBM format floppies!

RE: List of hp48-49-50 books/manuals/guides
Hello,
thank you very much. to prepare the list i gave a look at an old Educalc catalogue. Not the last ones. i will check them.
I think i received only 3 or 4 of these Educalc catalogues in the 90s. it was very difficult to have them in Italy.

For sure in these catalogues the foreign language books were missing. I am very happy to discover that France produced a lot of books i wasn't aware of.

Also a portughese one and i personally found an italian one.

thanks for giving me the possibility to update the list. the 48 family is the series of calculators i am most attached to. if it happens to find some new books please do not hesitate to drop a note to this thread.

thanks

Giancarlo

Hi,
For what it is worth, full scans of all the EduCALC catalogs from 1980 through 1997 up to issue #75 (with the exception of issues #9 and #13, which are still being sought) along with a five-way, 272-page index of all the catalog entries is available on the PPC Calculator Archive. For additional information, check here.

Thanks,
Jake

RE: List of hp48-49-50 books/manuals/guides
While we are at it..

Enclosed is my HP Calculator Bibliography with Notes as of November 24, 2019. The Bibliography contains 4694 entries sorted into the categories once used by the HP User Library.

Searching for "HP 48" should find you most of the reference cited above in this thread and many others.

Since November I have added some more books and articles, including references to about 100 Russian books. Currently the Bibliography is at about 5000 entries. I am working to find a repository which would make the publication of the Bibliography and updates easier.

Many thanks to SlideRule who kept me busy with his great catches.

As indicated before, the main limitation of the Bibliography are my language limitations. There must be tons of articles in Spanish, Italian, Korean, Japanese, Chinese etc. which I would not know (or even recognize).

Please let me know in case you have additions and / or corrections.

Felix

One more for the list (title/author/publisher/year):
FRACTALS On Hewlett-Packard HP-28 & HP-48
Yves Nievergelt
EduCALC
1991

Contact info for the author on the copyright page is listed as
Department of Mathematics
Eastern Washington University, MS #32
Cheney, Washington 99004-2415
USA

While the publisher is not 100% clear, it is assumed to be EduCALC since their name, address, phone number, and importantly "Stock #2435" is on the 1st inside page.

The book can be found e.g. on Page 60 of the EduCalc Catalog 58. According to Jake's Index the book was listed in catalogs 51 to 63, i.e from 1991 to 1994.

I have not seen a PDF-copy of this book anywhere.
