Note: I recently had the opportunity to “rescue” several boxes of photocopied Apple II manuals and documentation that had been discovered during a basement spring cleaning at my local library branch. This scan is sourced from a photocopy made on equipment that was new 40 years ago, so the quality is so-so and shouldn’t be considered archival. If I find an original manual, I’ll replace this file with an improved version.
