First Editions of these scarce informational pamphlets issued by IBM during the period just before the invention of the electronic computer, when the company dominated the market for punch-card tabulators and other calculating and data-processing machines. The pamphlets give a glimpse into IBM's corporate culture during this time: The company maintained a training school for workers at its Endicott factory, as well as a research library, on-site medical department, country club (complete with two golf courses, a bowling alley and a pistol range) and music room for the company-sponsored band, orchestra and glee clubs. IBM also offered tours of its Endicott plant; the Guide Manual listed as no. (4) includes maps of the factory with tour routes and points of interest indicated. Bookseller Inventory # 43136
