AFIPS, Spartan Books, 1965; 1,100 pages, references, index, double-column text, diagrams, some photographs.
Condition: Very Good overall, large thick dark blue cloth hardcover with titles in silver on spine and cover; no dustjacket; ex-technical naval library, with rubberstamps on endpages, pocket at rear. Some wear to covers at corners and spine ends. Bindng is sound and secure, although with this very thick volume, a bit of play in the binding. The pages are clean and unmarked.
Keywords: 1965 Fall Joint Computer Conference, man-machine interface, ferrite memory, time-shared computers, time-shared computer systems, computers in the 1960s, 1960s computers, simulation of human behavior, scratchpad memory systems, scratchpad memories, RC
