500 books !?!?! That is quite a collection! I have just recently began
actively looking for the old computer books although I have been collecting
the manuals, etc. for years. One book I have found fascinating is "The
Origins of Digital Computers", a selection of papers by people such as
Babbage, Hollerith, Zuse, Aiken, Von Neumann, and other notables. The
Bibliography that E. Tedeschi posted a while ago has also been excellent for
seeing what books might be useful.
