Thanks Bill.  Presume that you mean “Giant Brains, or Machines that Think” (1949)?  Conveniently scanned and online:

I have been compiling a library of such. Ioks here, if you are traveling north swing by to review the books on hand.  The one that comes to mind is Thinking Machunrs by Berkeley but here on the patio at my parents house I dont know the date.  Harvard press put out some early computing books but they may be Mark 1-specific.  Remind me and I can check when I get to the office.
