        IBM 305 & 360 RAMAC. Random access memory accounting

      London: IBM, 1957. First Hard Drive System IBM. IBM 305 & 360 RAMAC. Random access memory accounting. 7, [1]pp., including wrappers. Text illustrations. London: IBM United Kingdom Ltd., [1957]. Original printed self-wrappers. Fine copy. First Edition. IBM?'s RAMAC (Random Access Memory Accounting) was the first hard-drive system, and the IBM 305 RAMAC, introduced in September 1956, was the first commercial computer to use a moving-head hard disk drive for secondary storage of information. A RAMAC unit was also added to IBM?'s popular 650 computer, which had begun manufacture three years earlier. Each RAMAC unit contained 50 24-inch disks and could store five megabytes of information; it weighed over a ton and took up 1.5 square meters (16 square feet) of space. The RAMAC greatly increased the speed of data access and eliminated the need for sorting and batch processing of information, thus allowing businesses to approach ?"real time?" accounting and administration. The present brochure reprints an article titled ?"Continuous data processing in business administration,?" which had originally appeared in the January 1957 issue of Automation Progress. The brochure was issued by the British branch of IBM.

        The Blind Owl (INSCRIBED by Henry Miller to fourth wife Eve McClure)

      London: John Calder, 1957. 1st. Hard Cover. Very Good copy in worn dust jacket with loss at extemities.. Octavo; 134 pages. Inscribed "To/Eve/from/Henry/Berlin/10/24/62" (their divorce had just become final that June). McClure used the verso of ffep and half title to schedule and make her gift and 'to-do' lists for Christmas week, 1962, which include her sister Louise, Miller's sister Lauretta and children Barbara, Val and Tone (sic) as well as many of the couple's Big Sur and Carmel friends and associates, reminding herself to 'Finish moving out old studio,' ''Wash H.M. studio window - make up beds,' etc. Miller was taken with Iranian Hedayat's cult classic 'The Blind Owl' and was convinced a movie should be made of it ('I never stop talking about Hedayat's book, and certainly not with cinema people...' - from a 1964 letter in which he urged Hedayat's French publisher Jose Corti to reissue it in softcover). A fascinating - personal - glimpse of the Partington Ridge world Miller himself later described thus: 'It's almost as if, in quitting Big Sur, I walked out of my true paradise - and now, like the hero of "Lost Horizon," I am fucked!'.
