Additionally, there is a series of "beginners" manualoids produced by Roland
specifically for the 100M series.  A little boxed set of four skinny books.
I have one of these, and can probably find a second.  Let me know if someone
is interested -- note, this is probably only for beginning patchable system
users...

Also, you may want to try to find a copy of the 2600 manual.  Apparently,
and based on conversations with some synth "dinosaurs", this was the first
learning stage for an entire generation...

FWIW, I'm in the process of collecting books for my "soon to be opened" book
store, and do run across a number of interesting old books.  If any of you
are looking for something specific, let me know.  Also, if you happen to 
have a basement full of moldy old e-music books, give me a call!

Yes, I'm a dealer -- of books, dammit!
