Boston, MA: Time Magazine, 1945. Half Leather. First Edition. 144 pp. Folio. Light wear overall, clean and crisp within. Very Good.
A condensed version of Vannevar Bush's (1890-1974) Atlantic Monthly article of July 1945 in which Bush describes his proposed "Memex" system for organizing, storing, retrieving and linking information - a collective memory machine based on the image of the mind. The original paper has been credited with originating the idea of hypertext and the World Wide Web. This publication would have reached an even broader audience than the Atlantic Monthly edition with Life Magazine being the highest circulation magazine at the time.
