Lot 0018 Details

Description
Heading: (Atomic Bomb - Computer history)
Author: Bush, Vannevar
Title: Endless Horizons
Place Published: Washington, DC
Publisher:Public Affairs Press
Date Published: 16862
Description:

182 pp. Original burgundy cloth, gilt titles, in original pictorial dust jacket. First Edition.

Inscribed and signed by Bush on front flyleaf. Bush's report to President Roosevelt set the stage for American scientific research and development after World War II. While the document said nothing about the Atomic Bomb project, launched by Bush's Office, this collection of his writings includes his subsequent testimony to the U.S. Senate on the "Control of Atomic Energy", and his earlier wartime statements on "Research on Military Problems" and "Research and the War Effort."

Includes the first appearance in book form of two cornerstone works by Bush while Director of the US Office of Scientific Research and Development during World War II:
  • "As We May Think", first published in Atlantic Monthly, July 1945. A visionary essay about the potential for machine information technology, influential in the modern history of computers and artificial intelligence.
  • Six sections of "Science, The Endless Frontier: Report To The President On A Program For Postwar Scientific Research", first published as a government document, also in July 1945
Condition
Chips to jacket edges; light soiling to top of binding; else very good.
