Sold as is. No warranty from seller. No Returns.


CONDITION NOTE: Used, but in excellent condition for their age. Overall front and back covers are in great shape, except for edge and corner wear which is consistent with magazine of this age, and some residue from address labels that fell off from age (see pictures). A few contents pages also have some label residue (see pictures). It appears all pages are present (I didn't see any obvious sheets torn out), but do not have the time to check for every page in every magazine (see pictures). Vintage magazines may show slight page discoloring from age, wear, creasing, staining, possible rips, tears, bending, etc. (see pictures). See full description and detailed pictures (zoom-able) to know what you are purchasing. 


Short Background on the Publisher:

Green Publishing Inc. was founded by Wayne Green, a well-known publisher of amateur radio magazines like 73. In 1975, Green teamed up with Carl Helmers to launch BYTE Magazine, capitalizing on the growing interest in personal computers and microprocessors. BYTE quickly became an influential publication, covering the latest developments in hardware, software, and programming.
