First edition, first printing. The contents of this volume stem from two unfinished manuscripts, edited by Burks, and present Neumann’s final conception of the theory of automata. Divided into two parts, the work covers complicated automata in general, comparing artificial and natural automata, as well as the logical design of a self-reproducing cellular automaton.

Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine and front board in black. With the dust jacket. A fine copy in an excellent jacket with slightly rubbed and nicked extremities.
