IBM 5100 Manual Set

Well, certainly the find of the day was the IBM 5100 manuals. I found
them in a crusty used book store in a last-class indoor flea market,
buried amongst old binders.

I got the "APL Introduction" and "APL Reference Manual" and the "BASIC
Introduction" and "BASIC Reference Manual". The BASIC portion is a
photocopy of the original but the APL set is the original. By the way,
there's a reason why you don't see Microsoft Visual APL these days. What
a messed up language!
