[Computers] Table of the Logarithms of the Natural Numbers From 1 To 108000
London: Printed for B Fellowes, Ludgate Street. 1831., 1831. Second Edition, being the First Corrected Edition; the earlier printing featured nine errors which, given the content, were crucial. Tall octavo pp. xx, 202, [1 imprint]. A very attractive copy in a most elaborate full binding (for a table of logarithms) of straight-grain green morocco with heavy silk endpapers, all edges gilt with inner gilt dentelles; possibly a presentation binding (although unsigned) -both boards are intricately tooled with a geometric design of gilt rings. Later bookplate of historian Wilhem Voss of Hamburg-Altona to pastedown, some faint dampstaining to margin of first and final leaves, some sunning to covers. Very good indeed. Babbage is known for his advocacy of the "difference engine" an early calulating device and precursor of the modern computer.
