I have no idea. If this is the book I think it is, I bought it when it
came out (about 10 years ago), but nearly didn't. It's full of amusing
errors -- one picture that claims to be a VAX is certainly a PDP11 (or
vice versa), a microVAX CPU chip is obviously a memory device, one of the
other picutres is left-right flipped (unelss there was an ASR33 with the
punch on the right hand side, and a PDPx with all the front panel
markings mirror-reversed :-)) and so on.

It's an OK book, but it's not something I use that often.
