“The first part of this book is a general survey of the various types of calculating machines that have been developed, and their basic principles of operation. The rest of the book (well over 250 pages) lists, in chronological order, over 200 different calculators, often with illustrations, and in many cases with detailed, well illustrated, accounts of their mechanisms.” (Randell). Translated and edited by Peggy Aldrich Kidwell and Michael R. Williams (Charles Babbage Institute reprint series for the history of computing, vol. 16; Cambridge & London: MIT Press 1992).
