        I, Robot

      Gnome Press, 1950. Gnome Press, 1950. First Edition. Hardcover. Acceptable. New York: Gnome Press, 1950: First edition, First Printing. In original dust jacket with proper price of $2.50 intact. In FAIR condition, in a Good dust jacket. Heavy water damage to red cloth covered boards, causing mottling and waviness to cloth, bleeding to paste downs and free end papers, on the verso of the dust jacket and just slightly on the side edge of the page block. The cloth looks worse in reality than it does in the photographs, as they did not pick up too much detail. Binding strained at front. Text and pages are clean. The dust jacket shows rubbing, chipping, soiling, light creasing and wear along the folds and edges. The hardcover is fair due to water exposure, though the book on a whole presents somewhat well wrapped in the original dust jacket. First Edition.

Original blue cloth, titles to spine gilt. Illustrations and diagrams throughout. Neat contemporary ownership inscription to front free endpaper. Tail of spine very lightly rubbed, corners of boards bumped also slightly affecting top corner of text block. An excellent, fresh copy. First edition, first printing and a very attractive copy. This significant early computer textbook is a summary of the work of the Engineering Research Associates, an organisation "formed at the war's end by a group which played a very active role during the war and developed great expertise in computing devices in general and in particular in relation to magnetic drums… There are excellent bibliographies in the book for the student of this era. The book itself is a careful analysis of the electronic field as of 1950 and was in very large measure written by the late Professor C. B. Tompkins (he was Gamow's Tommy), of UCLA…" (Goldstine, Computer from Pascal to Von Neumann, note p. 315). Lead author Charles B. Tompkins (1912–1971) was a "pioneer in the fields of numerical analysis and computing" who arrived at UCLA in 1951 "as a member of the Institute for Numerical Analysis… He joined the Department of Mathematics in 1954, and at the same time, he became Director of Numerical Analysis Research, the successor organization to the Institute for Numerical Analysis. He was among the first to recognize the formidable role computers were to play in our society and strove endlessly to establish a strong computer center at UCLA. He played a key role in developing on the Los Angeles campus one of the country's most powerful computing activities, and the eminent position in computing that UCLA acquired at an early date was due largely to his efforts and his vision. When the UCLA Computing Facility was set up in 1961, he became its first Director" (University of California obituary, January 1971).
