Sketch Of The Analytical Engine Invented By Charles Babbage

About the translator / author of notes, Augusta Ada King, Countess of Lovelace (1815 – 1852), born Augusta Ada Byron and now commonly known as Ada Lovelace, was an English mathematician and writer chiefly known for her work on Charles Babbage's early mechanical general-purpose computer, the Analytical Engine. Her notes on the engine include what is recognised as the first algorithm intended to be carried out by a machine. Because of this, she is often described as the world's first computer programmer. This book published in 1842 has been reformatted for the Kindle and may contain an occasional defect from the original publication or from the reformatting.

Upside:Really upgraded my opinion of Ada Lovelace! She should be ranked as a genius ahead of her time.Downside: Even at this level of technology reading computer machine level instruction manuals is dreadfull; my brains just dozes off leaving my eyes and breathing to maintain the body. That is basically what this is.Summary: But remember that this was written over 150 years ago before the idea of a general purpose computer was anywhere common currency. She was probably one of 3-6 people who really understood what was going on. So I gave it 4 stars: basically for astonishment. Following her instructions one could program a Babbage machine. No "mean" feat.I am glad to have it on my "bookshelf"!Ray
