BAYKO Sets #0 to #3 Instruction Manual -
January, 1957 - 18th 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 January, 1957, and designated as being the "18th issue". The printer's code also tells us that 100,000 cpoies were printed.
This one I just don't understand at all. For some reason - for this issue only - the title of the "Double Storey House", which is the right hand model on page 16, is printed in green ink. I am not aware of this having happened elsewhere, and it was 'corrected' in the next issue.
There is a rather unexpected change on Page 21 [below], considering how long the original version survived unchanged. The model includes two Large Windows and two Long Bricks, with a floating 2-Brick Rod, over the porch. For some reason, Plimpton decided to add the instruction - "The 2 Brick Rod between the large windows over the porch can be secured in position with a small rubber band." - so now you know!
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.
Number of this version that were printed - 100,000.
18th Issue.
