All CL 1600-series manuals known to me are loose-leaf collections of photocopied typewritten text with illustrations pasted in. The original CL 1601 manual from 1972 was split in two: the smaller first part was included in the kit together with a registration form that one had to send back to Philips in order to receive the second part and a binder to keep the pages together. The division doesn't follow the chapter structure, but occurs mid-sentence between pages 4-3- and 4-4-.
Original CL 1601 manual (part 1) with registration form and part 2:
In 1973, an addition to this manual covering CL 1602/03/04 was made. The following year these were joined into one, with a few minor changes to cover CL 1650 as well.
Addition for CL 1602/03/04 and complete manual for CL 1601/50 and CL 1602/03/04:
Later in 1974, an addition to this combined manual covering the last add-on kit, CL 1605, was made, and finally a combined manual that incorporated this addition into the main manual.
The CL 1605 addition and the final complete manual covering all kits in the series except CL 1640:
|The table shows the relation between the various versions of the manuals. The small gap between the CL 1602/03/04 and CL 1605 additions represents the adaptions to CL 1650 in the second full manual. These are limited to including this kit in the parts list, and a line mentioning that CL 1601 in the text may refer to any kit in the series.|

The page references are in the form I use for naming files containing single-page scans. The column for the final combined manual is guesswork.
