2010 Was a Great Vintage Year
The year 2010 saw the addition of a lot of very rare instruments to our collection, instruments that I really had no hope of ever acquiring. Ebay yielded an HP 300A Harmonic Wave Analyzer, and an HP 100B Quartz Frequency Standard. Glenn Robb, during his visit to Paris in May, insisted on donating the oldest instrument of his own collection to add to ours. It was the most symbolic instrument ever built by Hewlett and Packard: A 1940, "Rounded Top-Corners," HP 200B Audio Oscillator. And to conclude this great collector year, Kenneth Kuhn sent me the most beautiful Christmas gift I could dream of: an HP 335B, HP's first Modulation Meter ever built.
All these additions to the collection almost completed the listing of product that were manufactured, and presented by HP to their customers in the 1948 catalog. This is a good opportunity to reproduce here this catalog with some "Browsing" improvement that the internet world offered us today.
