Okay, good!

Well, it is interesting that you say it because I got it from
Googling "History of Emacs Lisp" - which I thought was the
title ...

Maybe that could be a book project for you BTW?

But not just Emacs Lisp but "History of Lisp"?

It would cover the history of Lisp (the language) of course,
all the dialects, but also how it was implemented and put into
various settings (Lisp machines and so on, with
illustrations/photos), in industry and the university world,
_and_ not the least there would be code extracts so, while not
a manual or standard specification, it would be a book for the
real engineer as well, not just for "tech history buff"?

Well, think about it ;) But I get it you have your own
project(s) that take a lot of time already ...

Maybe there could even be some money in it even tho that
should never be the sole driving force when doing stuff ...
