    Default Edison System by Per Brinch Hansen for IBM PC

    Hello, I am reading a book written by Per Brinch Hansen from 1982 which describes the Edison System for the PDP 11 and the IBM Personal Computer. In the back of the book there is an order form for the software. I've scanned that page and attached here. It would be fun to take this for a test drive on one of my vintage IBM PC machines, and an internet search has come up completely empty. Does anyone here at VCF have any suggestions for locating the software? Thanks! Michael

    https://github.com/pdewacht/edison looks like it has some of the source code from the Edison System according to the comments in files like edison1.text. The zip is only 38 kB so it might not be complete. I don't have the book so I can't verify.
