This was Ken Iverson's original 1962 book which is rather far from
even early APL implementations.
[Iverson's book is sort of the opposite of a history. It's about how one
might write a language like APL. It is my impression that people were
surprised how well it turned into a working language, with excellent
multi user performance on late 1960s mainframes. -John]
