48KB on the motherboard, and the Language Card or equivalent 16KB RAM
card. The canonical configuration is a Language Card in slot 0 with a
16-pin DIP jumper installed between a socket on the card and a the
upper-left motherboard RAM socket (the RAM chip gets relocated to the
card), but of course there were many compatible memory cards.

I don't recall any reason why you couldn't do this on an Apple
][, but I know I did it on a Rev 7 ][+, and a friend had done
it on an earlier rev (4?) ][+ that still had the 4K/16K jumper
blocks on the motherboard. Obviously they were all set for 16K
(as you must have 48KB on the motherboard).
