Drummond/Myford M-Type lathe. There never was a proper "handbook" for the Myford/Drummond M Series of lathes, but we can supply four Sales & Accessories Catalogues (that include the essential headstock bearing adjustment instructions) - these representing everything published about the lathe presented as a high-quality bound print. To help with the practicalities of using the lathe I'd recommend a copy of comprehensive and easily-understood book "The Amateur's Lathe" - this is shown below.
