First edition, first printing. Signed by the author on the leaf facing the title page, “Best wishes! Don Knuth”, and with the ownership inscription at the head of the title of the noted American mathematician Lynn Harold Loomis (1915–1994). Loomis was a professor at Harvard from 1949. Together with Hassler Whitney, he discovered the Loomis–Whitney inequality. This is the first volume in the serial work, The Art of Computer Programming, counted by American Scientist among “100 or so Books that shaped a Century of Science”, and widely regarded as the first and still the best comprehensive treatment of its subject.

Octavo. Original pale green cloth, spine lettered in gilt and black. With the printed glassine dust jacket. A fine copy in the jacket with minor nicks.
