I had that one in hardcover. Very useful book, especially if you're trying to do things in an old-fashioned way.

Another you might like is the autobiography of Charles Babbage, Passages from the Life of a Philosopher.

http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/54221 — “Induction Coils: How to Make, Use and Repair Them” looks like something for those wanting some sparks, bangs and buzzes of their own. Just be real careful and don’t zap yourself.

http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/55375 — “Famous Frosts and Frost Fairs in Great Britain” by William Andrews, published in 1887, is about fairs held during long periods of frost. As good an excuse as any, I suppose.

Heh... The commands look a bit like programming in the machinecode monitor mode of the C128.

And this was kinda funny:
"The computation speed of BOGART is comparable to that of
ATLAS and ABNER. Physically; however, BOGART is much
smaller than either of these computers. The main cabinet is 8 feet
long, 3 feet wide, and 5 feet high."
