>From Emacs, do

  `C-h f read'
  `C-h f eval'

and follow the sources.  I don't think it's profitable to look at early
versions of Emacs; that's a wild goose chase.  The fact that the sources
are bigger now than in earlier versions is irrelevant, if you're only
going to be looking at the Lisp reader and interpreter.
