Description

Charles Babbage (1792-1871) was a British computing pioneer, mathematician, philosopher, inventor, social reformer and political economist. His Analytical Engine of 1834 was the first calculating engine designed along modern lines, and it is for this that he is considered to be the 'father' of computing. The duches was a close friend and frequent dining companion of Babbage's.
