I was searching for an old CD through a bunch of stuff I've had in boxes for YEARS and came across my box of miscellaneous NeXT related ads and brochures. Several of these things are already available in various places on the web but much of this is quite uncommon in not rare and possibly a few of the items are one-of-a-kind today.
Most of this stuff was either mailed to me from NeXT back in the day or picked up on my trip to the '93 NeXTWORLD Expo -- What an awesome time that was!!!
Oddly enough I made what I can only call a scrapbook from all the glossy and in some cases cheap photocopies of fliers, pamphlets, catalogs, and spec sheets I picked up at the show. Tons of stuff I'd long ago forgotten about.
Anyway, I'll be scanning a lot of it and posting it on my web site over the coming weeks. Later tonight I'll post a follow-up with a list of all the stuff I found and if interested you guys can help me prioritize the order it gets done.
Here's the list of Large Items: (I'll post all the 3rd party software ads later)
