PC Adapter Tech Ref

"Technical Reference : Options and Adapters"
MULTIPLE volumes:
Volume 1 (Revised edition April 1984) #6322509
Volume 2 (Revised edition April 1984) #6322509
Volume 3 ~8/84 #8322522

As IBM came out with more stuff, eventually the Technical Reference became
too big to fit in one binder. They stopped including the source code for
the BIOS!, and split it into multiple books. "Options and Adapters" has a
lot of the later stuff that wouldn't fit in the original Technical
Reference, such as the GPIB board, the PGA, and the ROLM integrated board,
But other than the later additions, the coverage of all of the earlier
stuff is no different than in the original Technical Reference.

AFTER I figure out just what survived the move, I'll sell my duplicates.
(I will have some extras of the volume 1 and 2 sets)
