Noah just dug up v16.56 for me.


/e/download/installers/emacs 2399% ll emacs-16.56.tar.gz
-rwxrwxrwx    1 Administ None      1085612 Mar 16  1993 emacs-16.56.tar.gz*
/e/download/installers/emacs 2400% ll emacs-21.3.tar.gz

epoch-4.2.tar.gz            27-Aug-1992 00:00   2.9M
lemacs-19.0.00.tar.gz            20-Apr-1992 20:11   5.6M 

Compare to:

xemacs-21.5.0.tar.gz                18-Apr-2001 03:41   9.9M 

And, uh ...

xemacs-21.5.18.tar.gz               22-Oct-2004 06:39  14.3M 
xemacs-sumo-2004-08-18.tar.gz       18-Aug-2004 05:08  28.9M
xemacs-mule-sumo-2004-08-18.tar.gz  18-Aug-2004 04:12   5.6M

Here is what c:\xemacs\symlink\man\internals\internals.texi says:

GNU Emacs version 16 (first released version was 16.56) was released on
July 15, 1985.  All Gosling code was removed due to potential copyright
problems with the code.

Anyone wanna get this version up and running?

BTW In the same directory Noah has patches to get 18.59 working on Linux, so
you've already got much of the work done.
