Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: From the cover: “Computer Networks is the ideal introduction to today’s and tomorrow’s networks. This classic best-seller has been totally rewritten to reflect the networks of the late 1990s and beyond. Author, educator, and researcher Andrew S. Tanenbaum, winner of the ACM Karl V. Karlstrom Outstanding Educator Award, carefully explains how networks work inside, from the hardware technology up through the most popular network applications. The book takes a structured approach to networking, starting at the bottom (the physical layer) and gradually working up to the top (the application layer). The topics covered include: Physical layer (e.g., copper, fibre, radio, and satellite communication); Data link layer (e.g., protocol principles, HDLC, SLIP, and PPP); MAC Sublayer (e.g., IEEE 802 LANs, bridges, new high-speed LANs); Network layer (e.g., routing, congestion control, internetworking, IPv6); Transport layer (e.g., transport protocol principles, TCP, network performance); Application layer (e.g., cryptography, email, news, the Web, Java, multimedia) In each chapter, the necessary principles are described in detail, followed by extensive examples taken from the Internet, ATM networks, and wireless networks.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 7".

Logic Circuit Design by Alan W. Shaw (£20.50)Publisher: Fort Worth: Saunders College Publishers — 1993Binding: Hardback [ISBN: 0030507936]Condition: Near Fine. Description: Illustrated by way of: Diagrams;

From the cover: “With Shaw’s conversational writing style, sophomore engineering and computer science majors will find this text’s coverage of combinational and sequential logic design easy to understand and a pleasure to read. The text is remarkably clear and provides extensive examples. Shaw maintains an ongoing relationship with industry, which is reflected in the text’s primary goal of preparing students for entry into the workplace — ready to design.

The text’s design-first organization allows students to master a simple systematic design process, then move to design and analysis of more complex circuits. The use of polarized notation offers students an easy-to-learn notation that clarifies the thought process in design, allows a simplification of the sign process, and improves documentation. Software simulation is stressed in all designed circuits, allowing students to test circuits before committing them to hardware. An early introduction to programmable logic devices reflects their importance in design.”

Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges. Text complete, clean and tight overall but with a slightly grubby first blank.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “Where would you find a piece of sticking plaster on a flute? Do you know about the curse of the Ninth Symphony? Why didn’t Beethoven become a child prodigy? Which is the only left-handed instrument in the orchestra? Why did Schumann give up playing the piano?

Illuminated by the comments of both Dudley Moore and Sir Georg Solti, Orchestra, takes the reader through the families of instruments — strings, woodwind, brass, percussion — and different periods of music — baroque, classical, romantic and modern. Combining history with anecdote, the book explores the lives of some of the great composers — Bach, Handel, Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Berlioz, Wagner, Stravinsky, Bartok-and their contribution to orchestral music.

With explanations of musical styles and technical terms set alongside intriguing and often amusing information about music and musicians, Orchestral brings to life both classical music and the people who create it.”

Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with fading at the spine. Edges of the text block lightly spotted.Description: Revised edition, by J. Du Mont. [First Edition: 1889] From the cover: “THE Author’s aim, in these pages, has been to provide a thoroughly complete and practical series of lessons in Chess. The reader is assumed at the outset to be without any knowledge of the game and the attempt is made to teach him how to play, and to leave him in a position to profit by more advanced treatises. The Rules, the Index to the Openings, and the section on Current Chess Literature, while of special service to young players, will, it is hoped, render the volume useful as a work of reference to more advanced students. Free use has, necessarily, been made of standard works on the game.”Notes: Size: 7½" x 5". Yellow boards with Black titling to the Spine & Upper Board. 113 pages.

Amused and amusing in expression, these essays are united by a concern for problems at the intersection of scientific psychology and communication theory.”Notes: Size: A Format (7" x 4½").
