Beyond his publications, Slonimski established himself as an inventor. He invented a calculations machine in 1844, as well as a device that allowed four telegrams to be sent at once. His telegraph invention gained particular notoriety when Stalin in a 1952 speech noted that the Russians anticipated the Americans with certain elements in the technical development of the telegraph. Stalin’s speech was immediately ridiculed with the New York Times going so far as to claim that Stalin had invented Slonimski.
The present volume is a technical mathematical text on arithmetic, geometry and algebra.
