Before there was NisusWriter Pro, or even NisusWriter, it was just Nisus. One of the first real alternatives to Word in the 'Pro' Mac word processing market.

Nisus 1.0, a word processor with a very powerful Find and Replace function, Unlimited Undoes, 10 separate editable Clipboards, a Thesaurus, macros from QUED/M, and graphics capabilities, is released.
Nisus 2.0 adds footnotes and other enhancements.

What format are these disk images? I cannot figure them out.

They appear to be in a flat file format. And (just guessing) they were perhaps Disk Copy 4.2 images, but zipping has caused their resource forks to be omitted from the archive.

However, they are recoverable by unzipping on a host Mac or PC and dragging the extracted images into a running Mini vMac window. They mount OK that way.
