Indeed.  The sources of LISP 1.5 written in 7090 assembler are
available, and there's an emulator, so as a week end project when time
permits, (unfortunately not since a few years, given the amount of
competiting interests :-/), we may have fun with it.

You may perform further searches with:

But on the other hand, Common Lisp let you run LISP 1.5 programs almost
unchanged, with minimal supporting code:

For more nostalgia, you may try pjb-computer-paper.el:
M-x set-foreground-color RET black RET M-x computer-paper RET

C-u M-x computer-paper RET will ask for the modulo (number of colors)
and block (group of lines) with which to set the background lines.
