In 2016 when I visited the Adelaide Retro-Computing Event in Australia, I met Jane M. Voskamp (Jones), veteran Commodore programmer and writer. Having seen her articles in Loadstar and the LUCKI Report a long time ago, I was pleased to meet such as affable lady. To my surprise, she also brought her 1994 publications which were still for sale. With the limited amount of Australian dollars I had, I bought 4 of her booklets, all produced on Commodores with the use of the Write Stuff 128 word processor, GEOS 128, and a Commodore MPS-1250 printer. The booklets were GEOS in Review - Reviewing GEOS Authors Programs, the Handbook of Commodore Disks, the Handbook of the Commodore 64, and the Handbook of the Commodore 128.
I would say that the Handbook of the Commodore 128 is an introduction to programming on the C128. The 45-page, A4-sized booklet is divided into the following chapters:

The price of the Handbook of Commodore 128 was $15 AUD, but she gave me a discount for buying 4 booklets. She can be contacted via Facebook or through her business -- JMV Grafix, PO Box 635, Enfield Plaza 5085, South Australia. Phone - 08 8 260 4062.
