In a late-breaking fit of spring cleaning, I found a PRELIMINARY version of 
the intel iAPX 432 architecture reference manual.  It is, strangely for 
processor manuals perhaps, an association copy, having been given to me by 
its author, Paul Tyner.  There is a tipped in note and a signed dedication 
on the title page.  The manual is dated January, 1981.  Turner committed 
suicide about a year later, not as I recall, because of anything to do with 
the 432.

The Intel 432 was a strange processor and, in the event, a step too far. See 

Anyway, if anybody wants it, I'll send it along.  Otherwise, it will be 
gifted to some future archaeologist.

Cheers, Scott
