"The Lost Treasures of Infocom is a collection of 20 computer games from interactive fiction pioneer Infocom, released in 1991. It was available in MS-DOS, Apple Macintosh, Amiga, and Apple IIGS versions, as well as a cross-platform CD-ROM version. Infocom was closed in 1989 by its then-parent company Activision. Still holding the copyright to nearly all the past Infocom titles, Activision bundled 20 of the most popular into this package. The games included are:

Zork I
Zork II
Zork III
Beyond Zork
Zork Zero
Enchanter
Sorcerer
Spellbreaker
Deadline
The Witness
Suspect
The Lurking Horror
Ballyhoo
Infidel
Moonmist
Starcross
Suspended
Planetfall
Stationfall
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy"

"The success of the original Lost Treasures of Infocom prompted a follow-up collection published in 1992 and appropriately titled The Lost Treasures of Infocom II. This package contained 11 more classic Infocom titles. The games included in Lost Treasures II were:

Border Zone
A Mind Forever Voyaging
Plundered Hearts
Bureaucracy
Cutthroats
Hollywood Hijinx
Seastalker
Sherlock: The Riddle of the Crown Jewels
Wishbringer
Nord and Bert Couldn't Make Head or Tail of It
Trinity"

"In addition to being dual-format (MS-DOS and Apple Macintosh), the CD-ROM version included three extra games:

James Clavell's Shogun
Arthur: The Quest for Excalibur
Journey" --Wikipedia.org

Only Leather Goddesses of Phobos was not included in either volume.

These collections included paper documentation, not PDF files like the later Masterpieces of Infocom, which is available on this site. Docs can also be found at: http://infodoc.plover.net/

Compatibility
Architecture: 68k

Archive is of 2 DOS/Mac hybrid .iso disc images. Games will work on a Mac Plus or later.

Like The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy and other Infocom games, you don't need to configure a Mac emulator to play this game, because 'Zoom' does the job for you, at least for the Mac versions included. Please Download Zoom for Mac OS X.

To get the games recognized by Zoom, please add the extension ".z5" (without quotes) to the game's application name.

I checked these files with the Zoom interpreter.

Besides that, these games runs fine with the well-known Mac emulators, namely Mini vMac, Bas and Sheep.

I only got the Mac versions be recognized by Zoom, but not the Windows versions.
For Windows and/or Linux, there must be an interpreter for Infocom games, too?
