The book "Anatomy of Lisp" by John R. Allen, McGraw-Hill 1978 contains
most of the parts for a simple Lisp compiler (written in meta-Lisp) in
its later chapters.

I got it running, long ago, on my CP/M machine. If I recall correctly,
after typing it in it took me only a few hours to track down the bugs
and to fix the omissions. I had to add some hooks to the Lisp interpreter
(things like "peek" and "poke") and had to figure out how to emit object
code myself.
