The last pages are the Table of Contents for the entire year 1966, volume 13. This issue is complete but lacks the front & rear covers. Previous owner mistakenly dated the issue on the first page as October 1961 - that is not correct, this is the October 1966 issue

Covers the concepts and features of electronic computers, not restricted to a specific computer system. The book also provides instruction on FORTRAN and COBOL, two major problem-oriented languages. Since both of these languages are machine-independent they can be used on most computers. COBOL is particularly useful for business data processing, and FORTRAN is used for analytical and research problems. Self-testing quizzes are included in both the Fortran and Cobol chapters to facilitate self-study... (From the jacket flap)

Appendices include, Computer Manufacturers 1960's; Survey of Computers; guide to Computer Organizations and Periodicals; data Processing Management association certificate program; Glossary and more
