Apple on Apples Vol. 1 No. 1 (Undated Version)

This is the undated version of the premiere edition of Apple on Apples, a magazine briefly published by Apple Computer with a lot of white space and advertorial. There was also a version printed for some reason with the date on the cover and a few other minor differences that you can read about on Paul Hagstrom’s excellent Yesterbits blog here.

Hand-Holding BASIC (Apple Computer, 1980)

This is Hand-Holding BASIC, written by Neil Bennett and published by Apple Computer in 1980. The quality of the photocopy is on the poor side, suffering from smearing similar to though less-dramatic than the Create with Garfield scan I posted yesterday. Additionally, the screenshots of the program in operation are indecipherable static.

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.
