Franksen, Ole Immanuel  
Mr. Babbage's Secret, the Tale of a Cypher -- and APL
Publisher: Strandberg, funded by IBM, foreword by H H Goldstine; 1984; 319 pages, references, diagrams.
Very Good, large square hardcover, some wear at lower front corner, hinges a little creaky but the binding is sound and secure, the pages are clean and unmarked

Although it may be read as an entertaining account of the cryptographical works of Babbage and others, the reader will find that the subject area of 19th century secret writing is not a goal in itself, but rather a vehicle. Neither is it a textbook presenting an educational introduction to APL. What fascinated Franksen and will fascinate the reader, is Babbage's groping towards an understanding of the innermost nature of data and data operations.. It is in this light that he sees Babbage's attempts to cast cryptography into a formalized mathematical formulation. It is his intriguing thought, given a popular exposition in this book, that the data concept of APL reduces to the definition of a geometry in the sense of Felix Klein's famous Erlanger Program of 1872. This opens an entirely new perspective in the educational integration of the computer into the traditional sciences and their areas of application..' (from the foreword by H H Goldstine)

Contents includes, The Philosophy of Deciphering -- a list of works; expert witnes; from authoritative sources; royal correspondence; from Babbage's Library; APL Terminal session;

Between Mathematics and Reality -- the philosophy of analysis; the principle of permanence of form; a question of relative position; geometrically speaking; it began with ABC; metric versus non-metric; according to Professor Petersen; pinning down an invariant; the Erlanger Program; the scaling of data; up to an ordinarl scale; APL Terminal session;

A Conservation Law of the Message -- language is pattern; I B Lindenfels, a Major in Frederik VI's Army; the Vigenere Cipher; how to impale a law; Laws on laws; foreign supremacy; APL Terminal session; Epilogue; Notes, references etc; The philosophy of deciphering, more

Gill, Stanley  
Parallel Programming, sep. bound reprint, signed 'with the author's compliments, S.G.' publ 1958 The Computer Journal
Publisher: The Computer Journal, Vol. 1, No. 1, April 1958, pp. 2-10.
Very Good, stapled light gray heavy paper covers, handwritten notation on cover, CME Library. Upper righthand corner of the cover bears the notation, With the Author's Compliments, S.G. [Stanley Gill] Cover text reads, Reprinted from The Computer Journal. Internal pages numbered 1 through 9 inclusive (the original printing in the Journal was paginated 2-10)

Abstract -- By 'parallel programming' is meant the control of two or more operations which are executed virtually simultaneously, and each of which entails following a series of instructions. This can be brought about in a single computer either by equipping it with more than one control unit, or by allowing time-sharing of one control unit between several activities; the latter case seems of greater practical interest. Some of the advantages to be gained and some of the programming problems to be solved in putting these ideas into practice are discussed.

To encourage the reticent and assist the indolent, a questionnaire has been enclosed on which may be recorded an opinion on any or all of the words defined here. Specific suggestions of new terms and revised meanings are especially encouraged..'
