About the Book

Description:

Octavo. First edition. Inscribed by the author to Frederick Fassett, who was a dean of students at MIT from 1952-1966. Wiener was a mathematician and the founder of the field of cybernetics, an interdisciplinary area of study that explores similarities between the function of automatic machines and the human nervous system. This novel marks Wiener's first foray into writing fiction, and it explores the tensions between the ideals of scientific research and the technological industry. About fine in black cloth, with price-clipped dust wrapper, which has some chips to corners and spine ends and slight toning to spine. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description New York: Random House, 1959, 1959. First Edition, hardcover. Very good, minor blemish at bottom of front pastedown, in a very good, price-clipped dust jacket (in fresh mylar protector), a nice, clean, collectible copy. There is no front free endpaper, the first page is the half-title -- but we see no indication of any removed endpaper so perhaps that's the way it came from the publisher.
