Apple’s first computer the Apple 1 always goes for a lot of money when they are auction and now an Apple 1 Computer manual could also sell for a high price in a new auction.
The last Apple 1 Computer sold for $375,000 back in September of 2018 and this Apple 1 Computer manual is expected to fetch $10,000.
The original vintage Apple-1 Operation Manual issued by the Apple Computer Company circa 1976, 12 pages, featuring Apple’s original logo on the front cover, designed by third Apple co-founder Ron Wayne and showing Isaac Newton thoughtfully seated beneath a tree, with a shining apple dangling overhead. The Operation Manual 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.’
The Apple-1 was originally conceived by Steve Jobs and Steve’ Woz’ Wozniak as a bare circuit board to be sold as a kit and completed by electronics hobbyists, their initial market being Palo Alto’s Homebrew Computer Club. Seeking a larger audience, Jobs approached Paul Terrell, owner of The Byte Shop in Mountain View, California, one of the first personal computer stores in the world.
