HP15C what books were in the original box?
Were both the HP15C Owner's Handbook and the HP15C Advanced Functions Handbook always included in the box with the HP15C? I recently came across spiral bound versions of these books and realized that if my original HP15C came with the Advanced Functions Handbook, I no longer have it, or more likely don't know where it is. I do have the nonspiral bound Owner's Handbook. I purchased that 15C in 1985. So do I need to search high and low for a nonspiral bound HP15C Advanced Functions Handbook?
CC41 coming soon!

I have a Swedish HP15C in box, and in the manual it is stated the the "Advanced Functions Handbook" can be bought extra, and it is in English (the Owner's Handbook is translated to Swedish). This is stated at the end of the introduction, so it was not always included in other markets at least. That particular machine was made in Brazil in 1985, the manual is from 1983 and nonspiral bound. Håkan

I (vaguely) remember buying the "Advanced Functions Handbook" as a separate item back in 1983(?).

I am not certain that the AFH was never in the box, but I have 2 HP15C boxes that it was not included in, and the other boxes that I've seem appear to be the same size as mine which seem like would not have room for both manuals. Also, the AFH was definitely sold as an HP Solutions Book title, and I'm not aware of any HP Solutions books that were marketed and sold separately, that were also included in the box. So, likely it was never included, but can't say for certain. Bob Prosperi

What about a look at the 15C manual? I got a a scanned version printed in 1987 ("Edition 1") where the last paragraph of the introduction says: Quote:Also available from HewlettPackard dealers is the HP15C Advanced Functions Handbook, which provides applications and technical descriptions for the rootsolving, integration, complex number, and matrix functions. So it looks like the AFH was sold separately. Dieter

Robert is right, The AFH was never included with the HP15C, you had to buy it separately. Sylvain

Hey, not all true! I bought my 15c in 1988, here in Brazil, and it came with both books!

I was the buyer, as a 2nd job, for a big HP calculator dealer in Montreal/Quebec/Canada for the 19811989 period. Except for maybe a shorttime special from HP (although I do not remember it), it was never bundled here. Sylvain
