Nice find! There’s a copy legitimately online, in Brett Victor’s trove of pdfs. And the paper that’s based on the book and referenced in it is also legitimately online:
THE EVOLUTION OF FORTH Elizabeth D. Rather, Donald R. Colburn, Charles H. Moore

(I link to Brett’s trove because it’s a fascinating collection, but I dare say not all of it is there with permission.)


There’s another paper that Charles Moore wrote in June of 1970. Again reproduced as an ebook/pdf

“Programming a Problem-Oriented Language”|
