BAYKO Sets #0 to #3 Instruction Manual -
April, 1954 - 13th Issue

This Instruction Manual was produced by Plimpton for their basic range of BAYKO sets - sets #0 to #3, and was the bread and butter of BAYKO's heydays, with a total of 20 issues being printed.
It is print coded April, 1954 and designated as being the "13th issue". This is quite strange as there is a second run of this manual, with the same date code, but designated as "14th issue". The printer, even the run quantities are the same.
I think that we can fairly assume that this is the earlier of the two print runs, based on the issue numbers, and I suggest that the confusion lies in a failure to change the printer's date code for the second run.
Page 33 [below] contains an ongoing anomaly. The list of new parts included in sets #3X and #4 continues to omit the Dome and both the Pinnacle Roof and Platform, despite the fact that these were certainly included following the launch of set #4 early in 1952.
 
The manual was printed by J.H. Leeman Ltd., Leighton Printing Works, Neston, Wirral. It has a full colour cover, the rest of the 40 pages are printed in red, green and black on white gloss paper.
Size - 250mm x 185mm = 9.8 x 7.3 inches.
It is labelled as the 13th issue.
Number of this version that were printed - 50,000.
