The aim of this blog post is to highlight four new books that I have scanned to PDF files for sharing online. Today we have:
- BASIC computer programs for the home by Charles D.Sternberg
This book covers a very ride range of programs that seem to solve a number of problems such as making Christmas card lists, music collections and meal planning. For example the second chapter Automobile Related Programs covers:
Auto Maintenance 50
Gasoline Use Computation—Basic Version 54 Gasoline Use Computation—Extended Version 56 Automobile Comparisons 59
Trip Planning—Basic Version 64
Trip Planning—Extended Version 67

2. Program Design by Peter Juliff (Head, Department of Computing Victoria College Prahran Campus Victoria, Australia)
ISBN 07248 10064.
This Australian published book (© 1984) will certainly bring back nostalgia for 1980s computer programming and algorithms curriculum. I believe this title is important to preserve, as Peter’s contribution to teaching reaches Australia wide. This scan is dedicated to Michael Mulhern for his generous and important contributions online and in person to the vintage computing.
Typed below is the table of contents (see the PDF for the illustrations!)
Serial File Processing
Abstract Data Structures
Appendix A COBOL
Appendix B BASIC
Appendix C Pascal

3. The Z80 Microcomputer Handbook by William Barden Jr (© 1978)
International Standard Book Number: 0-672-21500-4
The purpose of this book is threefold, to acquaint the reader with the hardware of the Z-80, to discuss the almost overwhelming (in number of instructions) software aspects of the Z-80, and to describe microcomputer systems built around the Z-80.
I bought two Z80 books and have created a new genre section on the shared Google Drive. Navigate through the link at the top as Scanned Book and Magazine Collection -> Z-80 Zilog Programming and Reference Books
4. Blacksburg’s Z80 Microprocessor Programming and Interface Book 1
© 1979 by Elizabeth A. Nichols, Joseph C. Nichols and Peter R. Rony
International Standard Book Number: 0-672-21609-4
This is an excellent title for looking back on hardware of the era, such as the Nano (NBZ80) and Super Nano COMPUTER (NBZ80S). It also covers in depth Z80 addressing modes, logical instructions and more.
