Welcome to

We specialize in vintage computing books, manuals, journals, references, documentation and more -- from ENIAC to IBM, from the era of vacuum tubes, to the transistor, to microprocessors; from punched cards to early personal computers.

If you are interested in the history of computing, we invite you to browse our ever-changing inventory. We have books covering many aspects of computer science, engineering and mathematics relating to computation -- including the history of programming, older programming languages, operating systems, information theory, biographies of the companies and people who were computer pioneers, electroacoustic and computer music items, and much more. Most of our items cover the period from the 1930's through the early 1980's, but we have some earlier (and some later!) items.

Whether you are a collector of highspots in the history of computing, or a classic computing hobbyist looking for an original user's manual, or an engineer seeking an older reference book, we invite you to explore our shelves.

And, if you don't see what you're looking for, please contact us! We have many thousands of books and journals not yet catalogued, and we're always adding more . . . we would be happy to help you find what you need.

Because we believe in making the old technology more accessible.
