Description: This book chronicles the life and achievements of Charles Babbage (1792-1871), an English mathematician and inventor. Babbage devoted most of his life and expended much of his private fortune and government subsidy in an attempt to perfect his Difference Engines arid Analytical Engines, mechanical calculating machines that foreshadowed present-day calculators. Although he never witnessed the completion of one of these Engines, he is known as the "grandfather of the modern computer" because of his original ideas.
