I keep hearing about the first addition of Catan having a rule book for 7-8 players by connecting two boards. I saw one person offer to send the PDF to someone via PM, but how come it isn't available publicly?

Would anybody be kind enough to send the PDF to more or direct me to somewhere I can get it? Thanks!

Yes, that's where I saw someone offer it via PM. I guess I'll request it there too...

I have seen a copy of it, although I don't appear to have it anymore. One thing to remember is that the original First and Second editions of Catan (well, US editions anyway) had different-coloured pieces from eachother, making the 7-8 player game work much easier in some respects. It also didn't use the frames that are used today. In any case, I have transcribed the 7-8 player rules in my Completely Annotated Rules & Almanac. The document hasn't been updated since the 4th edition released (and won't be) but the first and second edition rules are still in there with a special section just on the 7-8 player rules. I hope that helps!

Great thanks! We bought some extra colors for Catan, so we could add more players. I was looking for this because I wanted to see what the creators had to say about 7-8 player games.

It is important to note that the original 2nd edition rules for 7-8 players pre-dates the 5-6 player extension, so I'd definitely recommend using the "Special Building Phase" rules that the extension added to the rules.
