About this Item

416 pages, illustrated, and with a Foreword by The Right Hon. The Earl of Halsbury. ."Some four years ago, finding a certain limited knowledge of how Electrical Digital Computers function, I turned to the patent literature as the only comprehensive digest on information on the subject, one moreover written by draughtsmen whose special skill it is to effect an extreme clarity and precision of description. Notwithstanding the lucky circumstance of having this literature readily available, I found the mental struggle a severe one. Subsequent requests by colleagues to write a "child's guide to computers" left me acutely aware of how difficult the task was, and preusal of various popular expositions written since leave me equally unsatisfied. I was therefore much interested when Dr. Bowden told me that he was producing a book on the subject himself. It is undoubtedly the best general account yet written." VERY GOOD HARDCOVER, off white cloth toned on spine, internally fine, previous owner's name present, and stated from Bell Telephone Laboratories." Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
