I found this mention of it in Compute magazine.

I guess the port on the side is for two different memory sizes for a printer buffer.

 

The Atari FAQ says "

 

TurboPrint/A, by Telesys - 36 contact miniature-ribbon plug
 - Page formatting independent of software
TurboPrint/GTA, by Telesys - 36 contact miniature-ribbon plug
 - Page formatting independent of software
 - Prints Atari graphics characters
 - Options: B16 16KiB TurboBuffer or B32 32KiB TurboBuffer

I also found a few references to this.  I was hoping that someone had the manual.  When I set up a dot matrix printer, I guess I'll have to go through the 16 different combinations and see what happens.

Not that I am aware of. I have a pretty good sense of what has been archived out there. Hopefully it will turn up one day. I was able to scan a few other manuals from printer interfaces but not this one. It seems like it's a lot more rarer than other interfaces like the Apeface and the Supra interfaces. In the mean time, anything that you can document from using it would be great.
