    I broke down and got the Saltzman sales literature from John Craig
    <http://www.craigcamera.com/>, and it is enormously helpful.

    Richard K - as you mentioned, there are many models, and I saw the
    camera dolly you suggested. Very interesting stuff.

    Mine is model 30 WAB, the heavy-duty 8x10" enlarger upon which
    variations are made. There is a lighter duty 8x10, and then a 5x7 and a
    4x5. In 1961 the price for the 30 WAB ranged from US $3,300 to $4,500
    depending upon light source.

  2. I no longer remember where I got mine but think it may
    have been from John when he was still travelling the camera
    shows.

    Mine also had a section on Ascor speed lights.

    Richard, and others, I am wondering if it is legal and ethical for me to
    scan the catalog and make it available on a web site. Input?

  4. It is always easier to apologize afterwards than
    to obtain permission.

    I would post it.

    My personal ethical stand is "If it is out of print,
    will likely stay out of print, and the principals
    are no more then it is out of copyright."

  5. I agree. I have no idea who might hold the copyright
    currently. In any case, if this is a non-profit use it
    probably falls within the "fair use" catagory.
    The recent revisions of the copyright laws were
    supposed to simplify them and extend protection to authors
    of older material which was still capable of making a
    profit. Its a complete mess. All anyone can do is to warn
    you to stop. You can then ask them to prove they have any
    right to do so.
    If you scan and post it please put it in PDF form.

  6. Actually they were designed to keep Disney material under copyright until
    they could thaw him out. :)

  7. Well, you know, cut a slit in the wrapper and microwave
    for seven minutes on high.

  8. You must be thinking of "Sleeper".
