MECCANO Era BAYKO Instruction Manual
Sets #11 to #14 - April, 1962

This Instruction Manual was the last style to be produced by MECCANO for their BAYKO sets #11 to #14. this version is the middle one, and again 100,000 copies were produced.
This manual was also included in set #15 together with the special leaflets for that set...
It is print coded April, 1962.
There is a single significant difference between this and the previous version on page 3 [below]. The fourth paragraph, which deals with the order in which the diagram tells you to install the BAYKO parts, has been rewritten.
There is a slightly different, earlier version which is best known for the differences in the children on the front cover...
There is also an earlier version which is identical, except that it is a distinct type-setting...
It is perhaps a little strange that MECCANO didn't update this manual following the introduction of set #15 with its range of new parts!
 
The 24 pages are printed in red, green, yellow and black on white gloss paper.
Size - 222mm x 190mm = 8.75 x 7.5 inches.
