I've got a copy of that, which came from Craigmount Secondary School in 
Edinburgh.  Found by my Mum in a second-hand bookshop in the Grassmarket 
- "Oh, I spotted *this* and thought you might be interested, is it any 
good?"  Yes, it is...

Good enough, in fact, for me to write a fairly reasonable PDP8 emulator 
that, while not quite cycle-accurate, ran ODT and and the 4K Disk System 
reasonably well.

I must resurrect it, some time.
