This may be what you saw:

Owner's Service Manual
For Volkswwagen Squareback & Fastback Sedans
published by Volkawagenwerk Aktiengessellshaft, 1966
Printed in Germany 11, 1966 [in English]

Mine is ivory colored, but there may be a different one published 
later. It has the same large format pages that the Bentley has.

It is clear that both this one and the later Bentley are derived from 
the actual VW service manuals since both use the same photos and some 
of the same text.
