I remember this one.

There was an earlier "Alpha Book."

it was a thick digest sized book. The cover paper had an interesting texture. I don't remember the contents.

Ah, here it is:

The Alpha Book looks like a kind of a cross between the Technical Manual bound into the catalogs, and the Design Book. The latter came with my starter set in 1970. I had archaic plans from the very early MRN days, plus a number of technical reports. One of these might have been the wind tunnel plans.
