Lots of early IBM PC manuals & SW

Ok, Joe. Thanks.

I search mostly Early PC compilers. If I remember well,
IBM had Basic, Cobol, APL, Fortran, Macro Assembler, Logo and Pascal.
I had a couple of them, but any other find is welcome.

My second field of search is about Technical and Hardware manuals.

In third position comes commercial software: Wordstar 3.3, Visicalc,
Easywriter (I see it in the list), Dbase and so.

Fourth, alternative Operating Systems: CP/M, UCSD Pascal, Pick,
Xenix, early versions of Netware and Vines, and so on.

Fifth, the unexplored forest of the Utilities :-) There are a LOT of IBM
not well known by here. Some other, like the Professional Editor, are known
I have it already.

In addition, I should like to know if someone has one IBM PC XT expansion
with boards (and even peripherals installed). I should like to locate one.
