the library of our research institute has copies from at least 1/1977 completely
in the shelves (they say 1/76 but looking there, the first ones were missing).
At least the three articles of the TinyAsm are there, and I could make scans of
them on demand. You can find an index of Byte at 
http://www.devili.iki.fi/library/publication/10.en.html so if you have specific
articles (limited!) you're interested in I could pdf them. I won't scan everything
due to lack of time, and I won't make them publicly due to copyright concerns, but
we could talk about few articles.

Yes, the tiny assmebler was rather structured, a nice example how to write good 
assembler code. Unfortunately, the Byte articles only has a hex dump - the paperbyte
book had a commented disassembly, but I lost that eventually :-(
