Boole’s first (1847) publication on his Logic: “The Mathematical Analysis of Logic” is available at: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/36884
“The Calculus of Logic” (1848). Probably the most effective distribution of his initial ideas -in the internationally circulated journal which published most of his research. Available at:
1854 his reworking, once settled in Ireland was his key ‘legacy text’: “An Investigation of The Laws of Thought“; available here: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/15114
1936 Alan Turing writes his “Universal Machine” paper which (as part of a larger argument) outlines the fundamentals of future computers.
1938 Claude Shannon’s Masters Thesis connects GB’s Logic with electronic calculation and lays the foundation of digitality.
W. Daniel Hillis, “The Pattern On The Stone” New York; Basic Books, 1998.
This is a good book for a general readership. It promotes Boole’s ideas as at the core of computer design and function. It’s easily available in online bookshops.
Desmond MacHale’s biography of George Boole is currently the best work on his life. “George Boole, His Life and Work” republished 2014.
