The complete issue, octavo, in original printed wrappers. Octavo. (Item ID: 7039)


This first published account of Konrad Zuse's computer Z4, which was the most advanced computer of its time (far in advance of the ENIAC), and was discovered by the allies in the wake of the second world war. According to Randell's bibliography this paper appears to be the first technical description of the Z4 computer, with the exception of a 4-page Interrogation Summary by R E Works, published by Headquarters US Forces in Austria, Nov 8, 1946. (See also the Zuse article in Lee, Computer Pioneers) This issue also contains the first paper on the selectron ( the firstrandom access memory system).
