9780262132787: The Calculating Machines (Die Rechenmaschinen): Their History and Development (Charles Babbage Institute Reprint)

This final volume in the Charles Babbage Institute Reprint series brings to light an extremely rare German account of the calculating machine industry in the first quarter of this century when the use of office machines became common in American and European business, government, and science.

Ernst Martin wrote Die Rechenmaschinen to address the issues and questions that the public had raised about the many calculating devices that were appearing on the market in the early 1920s. His little book is, in fact, a developmental history of calculating machines in catalog form - invaluable for collectors of old machines. The introduction describes the seven major types of machines that had been produced by 1925. The corpus of the book consists of a running list of specific calculating machines, arranged by the date the device was first patented or produced.

Descripción MIT Press and Tomash Publishers, Cambridge, MA, London, England, and LA/ San Francisco, 1992. Cloth. Estado de conservación: Near Fine. First American Edition. First American Edition. [8], [ix]-xvii, [1 blank], 367 pp plus 25 pages of reproduced advertisements for calculating machines. 8vo. Publisher's red cloth. Number 16 in the Chales Babbage Institute Reprint Series for the History of Computing. Spine slanted, otherwise a bright clean copy. Cloth. The first American and first English language edition. Originally published in German as "Die Rechenmaschinen und ihre Entwicklungsgeschichte" in 1925, and extremely difficult for the translators to obtain, this was one of the first works in the Charles Babbage Institute reprint series to be suggested, but one of the last issued. The editors were fortunate to be able to access the collection of instruments at the National Museum of Natural History at the Smithsonian while undertaking an already difficult technical translation. The work is quite useful for anyone seeking a detailed picture of the mechanical calculator industry in 1925, but it is important to realize that it focuses strongly on the German marketplace. Other references as noted in the Foreword are perhaps more useful for those collecting American calculators. Nonetheless, a book we can recommend, and one which holds a useful position on our reference shelf. Nº de ref. de la librería 21389
