I only have this one, not the first.  It describes large scale assembly
programming through the example of LADS, the Label Assembler Development
System.  Lots of pages of assembly source, with a walk through of all the
modules.  Its interesting; one of the appendices is a
instruction-by-instruction discussion of the 6502 set.  The last 80 pages
are all just listings of object code data to get LADS on your particular
I don't think it would be as useful as the first book, especially for 2600
