Time-Life Series on 'Understanding Computers' (circa 1989)
My brother-in-law brought these over for me. They were going to be thrown out at his work and he offered to take them off their hands.
The one that caught my eye was 'The Software Challenge'. It's essentially about Software Engineering and the tools and techniques used in software projects.
At the time, the big idea was CASE tools. Computer-Aided Software Engineering. There's a whole section on that idea as well as testing concepts such as boundary-value testing, positive testing, negative testing, code path coverage and more.
