The Linux Cookbook: Tips and Techniques for Everyday Use

Publisher: San Francisco: Linux Journal/No Starch Press, 2001..
First Edition. Trade Paperback. 23 X 19 cm. Fine/No dj. Yellow covers with black titles, [xxii], 396, [6] pp, program index, concept index. This book takes much of the frustration out of learning to use your Linux system by providing step-by-step instructions (which it calls recipes in keeping with the cookbook theme) for performing specific tasks, rather than using the usual computer manual's program-by-program orientation. All recipes use only free software, much of which is derived from the GNU project. General subject areas are: working with Linux; files; text (includes word processing & typesetting); images; sound; productivity (mostly computer housekeeping); networking; administrative issues; Linux resources on the Web. Shipping weight 2 lbs.

The Cogwheel Brain: Charles Babbage and the Quest to Build the First Computer

Half a dozen leaves dog-eared, else fine. DJ in Brodart archival cover. From the DJ: "Drawing on hitherto unused archival material, The Cogwheel Brain is a tale of both Babbage's nineteenth-century quest to build a calculating engine, and its twentieth-century sequel. For in 1991, Babbage's vision was finally realised, at least in part, by the completion at the Science Museum in London of the first full-sized Babbage engine, finished in time for the 200th anniversary of Babbage's birth. The two quests are mutually illuminating and are recounted here by the then Curator of Computing.." Shipping weight 2 lbs.

The Human Use of Human Beings: Cybernetics and Society. Second Edition, Revised.

Publisher: New York, Doubleday Anchor [1954]. A 34.
199 p., index; 18 cm. "The new science of cybernetics which Professor Wiener and his colleagues at M.I.T. have developed has had a marked influence on theories of communication and control not only in mathematics, engineering, and electronics, where it began, but in such areas as psychiatry and psychotherapy, neurology, physics, and even in certain social sciences. In this substantially revised edition of his famous layman's version of the best-selling Cybernetics, Professor Wiener undertakes to relate his provocative point of view to some of its larger philosophical implications as well as to explain in fascinating detail the manlike machines which have acquired such formidable and potentially dangerous power in our world."
