Alan Turing's Notebook

Apparently, Alan Turing's Notebook from 1942 to 1954 was lost, but now is found and also worth a million. It's said that “[t]his notebook shines extra light on how, even when he was enmeshed in great world events, he remained committed to free-thinking work in pure mathematics.”[1]

No further comment!

He only had one notebook for 12 years? I've filled so many in that time.

Me too ... but sometimes less is more. My notebooks certainly are not as important as Turing's were.
