Apple Dot Matrix Printer

Apple released the Dot Matrix Printer in 1982 for the II and ///, and heavily advertised it as an add-on for the new Lisa in 1983.  The DMP was followed up by the ImageWriter.

The user reference manual is Part I of a two-part set.  Part II was branded individually depending on which computer it was sold with and each version contained instructions for a specific computer, for example “Apple Dot Matrix Printer User’s Manual for the Apple Lisa”.

I don’t currently have any version of Part II, but will scan and post if and when I can obtain them.

The Operator’s Guide is a 40-page quick-set up booklet containing instructions for the II and ///, but not the Lisa, and included a Demo Diskette to test the hardware after it had been installed.
