Yes, I've got it here (bought as part of a $3 per bag haul from a charity
book sale a month ago).

You are right about year and publisher, but the "author" was Bolt, not
Holt - it is part of a series called School Mathematics Project Handbooks
and A.B Bolt actually lists himself as "supervisor" of 6 Exeter School 6th
form boys who actually wrote the book.

It describes a binary adder, a NIM machine, a noughts and crosses machine

I see a few other replies, so that it is not all that rare :(
- but what exactly did you want to know for?
