"This volume is the only large set of tables ever to be produced by the original Scheutz difference engines. Babbage's difference engine was never completed, and the original Scheutz machine went to the observatory at Albany, New York, where it was little used. This, the second commercial version of the Scheutz machine, was put to work calculating tables for use in the developing life insurance industry... It is almost certain that Babbage would have been an advisor, if only unofficially, in the production of these tables" (Tomash & Williams).
