Recent Finds...

This weekend's recent finds netted me two books:

The first is called Computers and Man, by Richard C. Dorf, published by
Boyd and Fraser Publishing Co. in 1974.
  It looks like it could have been a college text at one time. The
real notable part is it is loaded with alot of pictures of earlier
machines and computers from the late 60s and early 70s (such as a
picture of an IBM 2321 strip file, which I think was mentioned here a
few months back.). also a good description of core memory (which I have
been searching for to go with my core memory board I won at VCF.)

  The other, which may be a duplicate (for me) was PET/CBM BASIC
Programming and Applications by Gene Streitmatter and Larry Joel
Goldstein published by Brady Books which had an unlabeled 5 1/4" disk
shoved in it, the disk contained a few examples from the book written by
the last owner (for the PET)... You never know what you may find
though. Not as bad a Programming books of the time go, even some nice
type-in games in the back.
