1971 Detailed Survey of 1940s-70s Mainframe,
Mini, Desktop, and Console Computer Systems
with PDP Inventor Gordon Bell, J. Presper Eckert, & John von Neumann ~ 668 Pages

Penned by one of the early pioneers in electronic data processing -Gordon Bell, who designed Digital's original PDP series - this historic text takes an in-depth look at a large cross-section of computing machines spanning the 1950s, '60s, and '70s, from vacuum tube consoles such as theIBM 650andRoyal McBee LGP-30, to desktop models like theHewlett-Packard HP 9100A, to supercomputers like theControl Data CDC 6600and the ill-fated 64-processorILLIAC IV, still under development at the time the book was written. Each is examined in terms of hardware, system architecture, instruction set, and a number of other criteria. Interspersed throughout are several photos of these classic systems, as you can see below. All in all, a definite must-have for any serious student of computer history.

Apart from a little cover wear, the book is very good condition. Ex-libris.Hardcover, 668 pages. First edition, copyright 1971. This item ships WORLDWIDE.
