You can always fetch a copy of the git repositories for any of the CLFS
books and checkout the revision of interest to you.  You'll have to
build the book from it's XML format into HTML or PDF, but there's a
makefile to help with doing that.

If you want to see the last embedded book which used uClibc (before the
switch to musl libc) you can checkout the clfs-embedded git repo [1] and
then checkout commit SHA d6d36176b815ec1c20201e5c52140299ee5b0545.  This
is the last commit before musl started showing up to replace uClibc,
made on October 14, 2013.

In order to build the book into HTML format, you'll need a few tools on
your host system.  These are documented in the BOOK/INSTALL file.

Exact steps to do what I mentioned above:

git clone git://git.clfs.org/clfs-embedded.git
cd clfs-embedded
git checkout d6d36176b815ec1c20201e5c52140299ee5b0545
