I need to remember I can't play fast and loose with my wording when I send
posts to the list ;)
While there were multiple printings, it falls out that there are basically
two major editions of Inside Macintosh; the early edition that was written
more chronologically, and the later edition that was organized by sections
of the Macintosh Toolbox.
I believe there are other printings yet; my volumes one through five come
in big 4" looseleaf binders, all official from Apple. My volume six is a
plain bound edition ... not sure if it was ever available in looseleaf
(probably, but why spend a lifetime looking?)
The CD-ROM edition is the later Inside Macintosh and it is readily found
on the Web. I believe Macintosh Garden has it. All volumes on the CD-ROM
were provided as PDF documents so it's all still quite readable on modern
