2 BRUNETTI, Cledo (b. 1910) & Roger W. CURTIS (b. 1904). Printed-circuit techniques.
In: Proceedings of the Institute of Radio Engineers, Vol. 36, 1948. 1948 
281 x 214 mm. 4to. Pages 121-161. [Entire volume: [xxiv], 1556 pp.] 51 figs.; 5 tables. Navy buckram, gilt spine. Blind-stamp of the Carnegie Institution of Washington, Mount Wilson Observatory. Fine. FIRST EDITION. In the late 1960s and early 1970s when components became sufficiently miniaturized, the printed circuit board became a major element in the design of computers. But the technology of the printed circuit received industrial applications as early as the 1940s, as presented in this paper, a comprehensive treatment of the complete field of printed circuits. These methods of printing circuits provided uniformity of production; the reduction of size; saved assembly and inspection time and cost; line rejects; and purchasing and stocking problems. Discusses production details as well as precautions and limitations. Applications presented include printed amplifiers, transmitters, receivers, hearing-aid sub-assemblies, plug-in units, and electronic accessories. Brunetti and Curtis were engineers for the Naval Ordnance Laboratory when this article was written. Ceruzzi, A history of modern computing, pp. 193, 195. Not in Hooke and Norman. First Edition.

3 DUBBEY, J.M. The Mathematical Work of Charles Babbage.
Cambridge, et al.: Cambridge University Press, 1978. 1978 0521216494 / 9780521216494 
FIRST EDITION. 8vo. viii, 235 pp. Frontis., illustrations, index. Black cloth, gilt-stamped spine title, dust-jacket. Burndy bookplate. Near fine. "Pioneer study describing Babbage's work on the calculus of functions, symbolical algebra, mathematical notation, and computers, and, to a lesser extent, analysis, probability, and geometry. Offers an interesting perspective on the early 19th-century Cambridge mathematical community which spawned the Analytical Society. Because of the rich original source material which Dubbey has discovered and described, this book is a prerequisite to research on British mathematics of Babbage's period." See Dauben No. 1008.
