For sale is my copy of AutoCAD Release 10 Software on 6 720Kb 3.5" diskettes, the User Manual, other manuals and literature, Software License Agreement, and the Dealer Sales Seminar Training manual.
In the late 1980's, I worked for a retail computer store in the St. Louis area. I was their Software Engineer and Trainer, in charge of installing software, training, and supporting our customers. The store owner decided to break into the CAD market, and I was sent to San Francisco for a week of training at AutoDesk Headquarters. Upon completion of the training, I was given this copy of the latest AutoCAD (Release 10), to take back home with me, to use for supporting our customers, and creating customized training materials for them.About 9 months later, we had sold AutoCAD to only a few customers, and the store owner decided to exit the CAD market. Rather than trash this copy of AutoCAD, I took it home, and put it on my bookshelf, where it has remained, UNTOUCHED, for nearly 30 years.
Below are the details of everything that came in the box of software. I rarely used it, even when I was supporting our customers, so it is in almost perfect condition from the day I received it. Any damage to each item will be detailed below:
- Heavy cardboard outer box. Measures about 12.25" tall X 5.625" wide X 9.375" deep. There are some "age spots" on the front and side of the box, just from sitting on the shelf all these years. The spots are brown, and mostly faint, and do not damage the actual box in any way. (See Picture #1).- On top of the box, is a label (See Picture #2) with: AutoCAD IBM PS/2 720KB FORMAT RELEASE 10 c2a OVL + ADE 3 ISBN# 0-922414-61-0 10-303452 (A Bar Code)- Heavy cardboard inner "tray" that holds all the contents, and fits snugly inside the outer box (Not Pictured).- Original Software License Agreement, with the Installation Certificate still intact, and not filled out (See Picture #3).- The AutoCAD Reference Manual. A 467 page hardcover user guide to the AutoCAD software. (See Picture #4). There are no markings anywhere in the book, and it still has that nice, crisp "new book" feel to it.- The AutoCAD Release 10 Installation & Performance Guide for IBM PC & PS/2, dated September 21, 1988. A 174 page paperback book. My name is written at the top of the first inside page. This copy has a misprint, where pages 27 through 42 are bound upside-down. At the end of the book, all of the form, survey, and bug report pages are intact and blank. (See Picture #5).- The AutoCAD Release 10 Tutorial, dated September 2, 1988. A 156 page paperback training manual to using AutoCAD (See Picture #5).- The AutoCAD Release 10 AutoLISP Programmer's Reference, dated September 2, 1988. A 118 page paperback reference guide to AutoCAD's LISP programming language. (See Picture #5).- The Read This First guide. A 6 page fold-out detailing what is included with AutoCAD. (See Picture #6).- A 1 page "Temporary Template" for users with a digitizing tablet. (See Picture #6).- AUTODESK: The Industry Standard. A 4 page fold-out sales brochure detailing the AutoDesk Family of Products. (See Picture #7).- AutoCAD Release 10 README.DOC for IBM PC/XT/AT and PS/2. An 11 page printout dated February 21, 1989, containing the latest updates and changes to the AutoCAD software, which were not in the printed manuals. (See Picture #7).- CADalyst subscription card. A cardstock flyer advertising the magazine subscription. The mail-in postcard is still attached and has not been filled out. (See Picture #7).- CADENCE Magazine tri-fold card. A cardstock flyer advertising the magazine subscription. The mail in postcard is still attached and has not been filled out. (See Picture #7).- A cardboard-backed, 2.125" thick piece of cream-colored foam, with an insert cutout in the middle to hold the diskettes and other stuff. (See Picture #8).- A 3.5" diskette-sized, light smoky-colored, storage container in original plastic bag. There is nothing on this container identifying it with AutoDesk or AutoCAD. There are no scratches or markings on the container, and when I pulled it out of the bag to inspect it for this sale, that was probably the only time it has been out of the bag. (See Picture #8).- A 3.875" X 1.25" label. Text says "For Product Support Call:" with spaces for Dealer Name, Phone, and AutoCAD Serial Number, along with the AutoDesk logo. The label is still on the peel-pack paper, and has not been filled out (See Picture #8).- 6 3.5" 720Kb MS-DOS Diskettes containing the AutoCAD Release 10 software. I think I may have installed this software on my work computer, one time. All 6 diskettes are in perfect condition, and should still contain a read-able copy of the software. I have no way of verifying this, as I no longer have a computer capable of reading these diskettes. (See Pictures #8 & 9).- Not included in the original AutoCAD software, but I'm including it with this sale, as I have no use for it, and whomever wins this sale may find it valuable. The AutoDesk, Inc. Dealer Sales Seminar, Sausalito Edition, Dated January 1989 on the cover, and dated "1/02/89" on the bottom right corner of each inside page. A 38 page guide, in-house bound with a clear plastic cover. My name is on the cover, and I have taken notes throughout this guide. This seminar was taught during one or two days of the five day training class I attended at AutoDesk. (The other days were focused on training us how to use and support AutoCAD). This training seminar was only provided to representatives of retailers who were authorized to sell and support AutoCAD. As such, with only one copy per dealer, this guide must be fairly rare. (See Picture #10).
The box and its contents weigh about 10 pounds, 2 ounces. Due to the size and weight of this box, I'm charging a flat US$25.00 for shipping, within the United States.
