This might be somewhat afield from what you're looking for, but I have
put the Implementation section from "Smalltalk-80: The Language and
Its Implementation" (the "Blue Book" to Smalltalkers) online at my
site (no figures - I'll be adding them over the next couple of days):
This defines the original Smalltalk-80 Virtual Machine for the
original Smalltalk-80 Virtual Image - which means it's a 16bit
implementation (1981 vintage), not 32bit like "modern" Smalltalks ,
and is defined as a pure bytecode "interpreter" (most modern
commercial Smalltalks have used what later got called JIT translation,
and made a big deal of, for over 10 years).
At least this should give you another perspective.
