The Univac System.

New York. Remington Rand. No date. Ca. 1958.
Vintage promotional booklet, 14 x 10 ½ inches, 24 pp. including color pictorial thin card covers. Glassine on front and rear covers is damaged, chiefly on the rear cover, with loss along the free edges. Color and black and white illustrations, with several pages at rear devoted to businesses, government, or military organizations that have adopted the Univac Electronic System in advancing their organization's agenda (U.S. Census Bureau, General Electric Company, etc). One page features a picture of the Unityper II - a modified electric typewriter that converted type strokes to pulse patterns recorded on tape. This machine was introduced in 1958, hence the dating of this booklet. Light damp stain at top margin, visible chiefly on white (versus colored) surfaces. An interesting vintage publication documenting state-of-the-art computer technology as it existed in the Eisenhower era. No copies are listed on WorldCat. Item #54558
