in thread Knuth books and programming

I haven't seen the older editions, but aren't they also beautifully typeset? (I thought he wrote TeX so that he could present things the way he wanted to in these books.)

    Yes, that's the reason he started writing TeX. But I think the older editions were not typeset with TeX yet. I have the impression I read somewhere that he gave his original books, together with all his corrections, for someone to typeset in TeX for the new editions. I could be wrong.
