Zork I: The Great Underground Empire
by Infocom
(Personal Software package ("Zork"))

In 1980, Personal Software put out the first Apple II version of Zork I, in a windowed box with the manual cover visible from the front. This version had the game title in black letters instead of white, and was considerably smaller than the TRS-80 manual. The only one I've ever seen complete was sold in an eBay auction for $500. (Wish I'd bid higher.)

Curiously, I also saw a TRS-80 version with a small manual on eBay a few weeks back. The Apple II version has loading instructions specific to that platform, so it's a safe assumption that two versions of the smaller manual were printed.
