A description of the Ferranti Pegasus 2 Computer System

This book 'describes the distinctive features of the Pegasus 2 Computer, both in its basic form and when used as a data-processing system.  Much of the more detailed matter has been put as footnotes or appendices.'
The Pegasus 1 was first delivered in 1956 and the Pegasus 2 was delivered in 1959. Ferranti sold twenty-six copies of the Pegasus 1 and twelve copies of the Pegasus 2, making it Ferranti's most popular valve (vacuum tube) computer. At least two Pegasuses survive, one in The Science Museum (London) and one in The Manchester Museum of Science and Industry.
