Extremely rare original vintage Apple-1 Operation Manual issued by the Apple Computer Company circa 1976, has been listed for auction on the Boston-based RR Auctions’ website and is estimated to fetch over $10,000, with the current top bid standing at $9,422.
The Operation Manual on 12 pages, 8.5 x 11, featuring Apple’s original logo on the front cover, is designed by third Apple cofounder Ron Wayne and showing Isaac Newton thoughtfully seated beneath a tree, with a shining apple dangling overhead.
It features information on getting the system up and running, using the system monitor, and expanding the Apple system, and features an impressive fold-out schematic of the Apple-1 computer. It also has a page headed “6502 Hex Monitor Listing,” for an innovative memory program devised by Steve Wozniak, which is commonly called the “Woz Monitor.”
RR auctions sold a working Apple-1 last year for $375,000.
