Format: Hardcover
The book builds gradually up from lambda calculus and how to implement it. The book promises not to discuss any functional language in particular but implementation of functional languages in general, but eventually the examples on lambda calculus end up implementing lisp.

The Author focuses on implementing lambda calculus through a technique called graph reduction.

The Book can be downloaded free from Microsoft Research here http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/people/simonpj/papers/slpj-book-1987/

Format: Paperback
This has been out of print for years, so the author, Simon Peyton Jones, has made it available for free in several formats from his web site. A web search will turn it up.

It's a great book, so read it from there!
