        Kenbak-1. Prototype of the first personal stored-program computer

      1971. KENBAK-1. (1) Prototype Kenbak-1 computer built by its inventor, John Blankenbaker (b. 1929). Comprises motherboard with 132 integrated circuits, 2 power supplies, 2 MOS shift registers (1024 bits each) and cooling fan, in customized steel case with 3-prong power connector, the front panel with a toggle power switch, 12 incandescent lights, 15 pushbuttons and various lettering including the name "KENBAK-1." Approximately 490 x 292 x 110 mm. Preserved in a foam-padded protective instrument case. (2) Binder of documentation including Programming Reference Manual KENBAK-1 Computer (Los Angeles: KENBAK, 1971; iii, 24pp.); "Installation & maintenance" (photocopy; 8pp.); "Theory of operation" (photocopy; 9-42, 26pp.); original coding sheets, mimeographed purchase guides, reviews, stationery, etc. (3) Laboratory exercises KENBAK-1 computer. Variously paginated. Los Angeles: KENBAK, 1971. Original wrappers, spiral-bound. (4) Advertisement for the KENBAK-1 computer. In Scientific American 224, no. 3 (September 1971): 194. Whole number, in original printed wrappers. The prototype of the KENBAK-1, the world's first commercially available stored-program personal computer, so deemed in 1987 by a panel of judges, including Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, at the Computer Museum in Boston.The stored program concept, in which both program and data are processed in an electronic memory, was the key concept in the design of the electronic computer as theorized by John von Neumann in the so-called von Neumann architecture. Because the Kenbak-1 was the first personal computer to apply this key concept in its design, it is an especially important landmark in the history of computing. Only about 40 or 50 of these machines were ever built; of which perhaps ten remain extant. The KENBAK-1, invented by computer engineer John Blankenbaker, went on sale in 1971, five years before the Apple 1. This prototype model of the KENBAK-1 is the very one used in the first demonstration of a commercial personal computer, which took place in May 1971 at an Anaheim, California convention of high school mathematics teachers. This unit was still operational in July 2015. "[The KENBAK-1] was created in 1971 by John Blankenbaker, working in his garage in Los Angeles. Initial sales commenced in September of 1971. It was intended to be educational and the professionals in the field were enthusiastic but it was a struggle to convince the non-professionals that they could buy a real computer at this price ($750), thus only some 40 devices were sold, mainly to schools. "The creator of Kenbak-1-John Blankenbaker, had a long experience in the field of computers. He started the design of a computing device as early as in the winter of 1949, when he was a 19 y.o. physics freshman at Oregon State College, inspirited by an article in a magazine. After graduation from the college in 1952, he worked at Hughes Aircraft Co. in the department for digital computers, designing the arithmetic unit for a business data processor. Some time in the late 1950s he began to think there could be simple computers which could be afforded by individuals. "As late as in the fall of 1970 he found himself unemployed and decided to investigate what might be done to make a computer for personal use. He wanted the computer to be low cost, educational, and able to give the user satisfaction with simple programs. The computer could be serial and slow which would reduce the cost yet create the environment that was desired. It should demonstrate as many programming concepts as was possible. Because of the small size, the native language of the unit would be the machine language. Above all, it had to be a stored program machine in the von Neumann sense. To keep the costs low, switches and lights were the input and output of the machine. (Some thought was given to punched card input, but it was never developed.) By the spring of 1971, the logic printed circuit board had been built and the computer was assembled. Designed before microprocessors were available, the logic consisted of small and medium scale integrated circuits, mounted on one printed circuit board. MOS shift registers implemented the serial memory. Switches in the front keyed the input and lights displayed the output. The memory was two MOS shift registers, each of 1024 bits. The computer executed several hundred instructions per second" (Dalakov). As noted above, Blankenbaker demonstrated the KENBAK-1 in May 1971 using this prototype. In September 1971 the first advertisement for the machine appeared in the Scientific American, promising potential customers that "very quickly you, or your family or students, can write programs of fun and interest." Blankenbaker intended the computer to be used for educational purposes and so did not make any special effort to market it to hobbyists, an omission he later regretted. Between 40 and 50 commercial units, differing slightly from the prototype, were manufactured and sold between 1971 and 1973, when the company folded. According to Wikipedia, about 10 KENBAK-1 units are now known to exist worldwide. Dalakov, Georgi. "The KENBAK-1 of John Blankenbaker." History of Computers, Computing and Internet. N.p., n.d. Web.

        Die Kleine Passion

      Officina Bodoni 1971 - 23x16cm, 217pp. With thirty-seven woodcuts re-engraved by Leonardo Farina after the originals of 1511 by Albrecht Durer. Copy 54 of 115 copies of the German edition, printed in Dante roman and italic on Fratelli Magnani handmade paper, bound in quarter-brown pigskin with gilt rules over fawn Ingres paper-covered boards, t.e.g., red silk headbands, Press device blocked in gold to the front, title in gilt to backstrip, clear acetate wrapper, the single-sheet prospectus laid-in, in a slipcase of similar paper-covered board with pigskin reinforcement to the head and foot of the opening. A beautiful as-new copy of an Officina Bodoni jewel, modestly proportioned and done in the usual immaculate and restrained style of the Press. The Latin poems of Chelidonius are printed facing the woodcuts, followed by the German translations by Kosmas Ziegler and an essay by Mardersteig on the printing of the woodcuts and Chelidonius. There were also slightly larger editions of 140 copies with an English translation, and 135 with an Italian translation. The matching curves of the backstrip and slipcase reinforcements at the head and the foot gives an extremely well-finished look to the book, further enhanced by the bevelling of the long edges of the opening, which are cut away just enough to facilitate easy removal - a very elegant touch. Fine (in fact mint) but for a small (16x8mm) inked ownership stamp to the front pastedown, and similarly below the imprint on the title page, with a Fine slipcase and Near Fine (light puckering, but quite possibly not original in any case) acetate wrapper.

        ART WORKERS NEWSLETTER / ART WORKERS' NEWS / ART & ARTISTS [Near-Complete Run; 105 Issues]

      New York: National Art Workers Community / Foundation for the Community of Artists, 1971-1989. First Edition. Very good +. Newsprint. Various formats and sizes. About very good plus overall. Most are modestly age-toned as usual but remain clean and readable. Several suffer small rips, but no major losses. Generally well-preserved and housed in three archival Gaylord boxes. A nearly full run (w/ scattered issues lacking) of this important NYC art newspaper, described by Gwen Allen as “the first artists' publication to focus sustained attention on artists' rights.” During its nearly two-decades-long run, the paper changed its name, format, and editors several times, but remained above all political in its motivations and focused on the material conditions of working artists in New York (and throughout the United States). Frequently covered topics included government arts funding and lack thereof, struggles for affordable housing (both before and during the redevelopment of SoHo), wage and payment disputes with galleries and museums, issues of copyright and obscenity law, and health hazards associated with art-making materials. Representative headlines include: “Millions for Art, Pennies for Artists,” “Artists of Soho Face Crisis: Real Estate Speculation... Threaten[s] Community's Existence,” and “Forces Gather for Long Government Arts Struggle.” The paper often examined regional developments in artist politics throughout the U.S. as well, reporting specific legislation of arts funding and the decisive political players involved, and thus forms a valuable record of arts policy throughout the ‘70s through the Reagan years (with frequent attention given to grants through the NEA and other organizations). Profiles of artists and art-world personalities include Alice Neel, Robert Rauschenberg, Marcia Tucker, Alexander Calder, and Richard Serra (the latter of whose "Tilted Arc" controversy is covered in detail), and tended to focus on the social dimensions of their work. The newspaper forms a valuable record of the downtown arts scene's political side during the 70s and 80s – not only in its attempts to organize and advocate for its own labor rights, but through an increasing focus on questions of race and gender as well. While a cursory examination of OCLC reveals apparently wide holdings under its various incarnations, almost all of those are scattered and incomplete. Rare when this comprehensive, especially for so ephemeral a production. A more detailed inventory of the collection is available on request. [Allen, ARTISTS' MAGAZINES, p. 240].
