Yes, it was sold by Acorn, and it was in the official price list. It was
unusual in that it was sold both by Acorn and by the original devloper,
Intelligent Interfaces. The manual says it was developed jointly, so I
imagine that's why. The oldest price list I can lay my hands on quickly is
January 1988, and it lists it at UKP325.00.
