Perhaps someone still has an ancient BookManager CD with that really
title, such that they still have access to a digital copy. Finding out
name of the .boo file would enable searching for the file name [without
extension, per chance searchable even whilst the content with both title
publication number remain elusive from searches].
The naming is likely, but that is just a guess, suggesting a
likely prefix.

Of course if they have such a CD, then even if they do not have a
functional copy of the BookManager software, probably they could use a
converter, from that .boo format to another; e.g. "BookServer is the tool
that allows this on the web (converting each BookManager page to HTML on
fly)." which is a quote from the FAQ found via the link included below.

FWiW: From the IBM Publications Center there is a FAQ for which there
a suggestion to click the _About this site_ link for Contact Information,
a response to the question "The publication I want is obsolete - what has
replaced it?":
