*How It Works...The Computer.*

This book was published in 1971, and the revised edition was published 
in 1979.

Guinnessy writes "In a younger, more innocent time, Ladybird Books came
out with a series of children's books called "How things work." Someone
has put the 1971 and 1979 versions of [0] How Computers Work onto the
web. It's a fascinating glance at how much computers have advanced since
the silicon chip was introduced. State-of-the-art in 1971 consisted of
fitting thirty components into a 1 cm3 volume."
