As a supplement to Coleco Industries, Inc. 1981 Annual Report, Coleco included a 56 page booklet titled "Coleco 1932 - 1982". This is in essence as close as you'll ever come to an official history of the first 50 years of the company - written and endorsed by Coleco themselves. This even includes a financial summary for the company from 1962 to 1981.
The scan attached was done by a local commercial printers and they succeeded in washing out the colour somewhat in the process. The pages should all have a yellowish tinge to them to reflect the colour of the paper (see my scan of the 1981 Annual Report) and the colour of the photographs should be richer. I no longer have the booklet that this was scanned from but have in the interim bought one of my own. I would like to redo the scan myself but the booklet has a thick glued spine and it will inevitably get badly damaged in the scanning process (the other one was). For now I've been reluctant to go ahead and do this. So, in the meantime enjoy the scan that is currently available which also contains bookmarks and is searchable.
Fascinating stuff in my opinion.
