LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Faber and Faber, London - first edition, 1996. hardcover, 8 3/4" x 5 1/2", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, and usual library markings (stamps, stickers, barcode etc). VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket. Black cloth-bound boards with yellow type to spine. In the 1830s Charles Babbage nearly invented the computer - the very thought induces historical vertigo and disrupts our view of the past. In this book thirteen unorthodox essays by poets, biographers, scientific historians and critics explore fascinating aspects of the powerful, sometimes difficult, relationship between science and culture - revealing often hidden technological bridges between the sciences and the humanities.
