There was a "user manual" for the Apple ][ published in January 1978.
It was 8.5x11, had a red cover, and was shipped with every Apple ][
until the newer manuals appeared. This was referred to as the
"Red Book". It was in no way an "internal document".

There may well have been some *other* document called a Red Book, but
I don't think that's what this thread is about.
