I received several replies to the offer and did some more searching on
the net. It seems books with the same title are available on both Amazon
and Abebooks and are very reasonably priced. The booksellers listings
indicate they are all softcover. The version I have is hardcover.

The book is a pretty complete "how-to" for building the authors SC/MP
based "SCAMP" computer. It's quite possible the author did versions with
the same title except focusing on different microprocessors. Other
logical offspring would be the Z80, 6502,and 6800.

Does anyone have other versions of the book?

See ya, SteveRob
