Bell Labs published the V7 manuals with HRW publishing. Copies are
available on eBay. I recently got Volume 1 and 2 copies of Volume 2.  The
publication date is 1983...  Cool to have, but not as cool as an artifact
of the original manual :) Some sellers have them for $75, but I got my
copies for like $10 each...
