Notes

First edition, first impression. From the library of early computer scientist Nathaniel Rochester, with his contemporary ownership inscription to the front free endpaper. Noam Chomsky's revolutionary linguistics work was enthusiastically received by many computer scientists, and influenced the development of computer languages and artificial intelligence. This volume's owner, Nathaniel Rochester (1919-2001), was an IBM computer engineer who developed the concept of symbolic assembly language programming; was the chief architect for the IBM 700 series, including the firm's first computer for scientific applications (701) and their first mass-produced general purpose computer (702); and did pioneering research on artificial intelligence, heading the IBM team that studied pattern recognition and information theory during the 1950s. The copy of Chomsky's "Three models for the description of language" in Hook & Norman's Origins of Cyberspace (number 532) belonged to Rochester. A superb association.
