Being a real low budget production, the original Apple II Reference
Manual--a.k.a. "Red Book" because it's a big, red, 8.5x11 manuscript--has
no ISBN number. The only number on it is an Apple part number:

Did you know there was a "Blue Book"? It's the original Applesoft
Reference Manual done up in the same sketchy manner as the Red Book only
with a blue cover.

At any rate, not terribly easy to find but they do come up for sale on
eBay from time to time, albeit at horrendous prices. All I remember is
seeing some go for $100+.
