This form will search all books.

If you enter two or more words in this box, the search will look for both words, but not necessarily in the order you enter. Don't worry about upper and lower case. The search ignores words of less than three letters, such as initials like the "H" and "G" in "H. G. Wells".

To look for part of a word, use the wildcard * - for example, lon* will find "London" and "Longfellow". If you want to exclude a word from your search, put a minus sign in front of it: -pirates bucc* will find buccaneers, but not pirates.


This form will search all books.

You can make a very specific search using this form: keep your search broad enough to find what you are looking for! If you enter two or more words in the Author, Title, Publisher or Keywords fields we'll look for all of them, though not necessarily in the order you enter them.

Where a book has more than one ISBN we use the British ISBN; and we also tend to use the 10-digit ISBN instead of the 13-digit one.

Alan Turing - the Enigma

Burnett Books, London
Thick, heavy 8vo. in black faux cloth, silver lettering to spine. 587pp, plates, index etc. This is one of the rare first editions, published by Burnett Books in a very small edition, the subsequent publication by Simon & Schuster, retaining the same ISBN, was actually the second edition consisting of many more copies. This groundbreaking book has been hugely influential both in the study of computing history and the arts - besides spawning many other books and documentaries it was adapted by Hugh Whitemore for both stage and TV dramas, by Graham Mooore for his Oscar winning script for 'The Imitation Game' of 2014, and as the basis for a 'musical biography' (A Man from the Future) by the Pet Shop Boys.
An extremely well preserved FINE unmarked very clean and tight copy (page-block edges very slightly tanned, minute crease to the top edge of the spine) in a FINE complete Dust Jacket (merest hint of tanning to top edge, very slight crease to head of spine panel, looks new in its removable transparent protector). An excellent copy
