 CHARLES BABBAGE, A Comparative View of the Various Institutions for the Assurance of Lives
CHARLES BABBAGE
A Comparative View of the Various Institutions for the Assurance of Lives
London, J Mawman, 1826. First edition. Leather. London: J Mawman, 1826. First edition. Leather. Near Fine. 8.5" by 5.5". None. The first edition of accomplished mathematician Charles Babbage's first written work. This work being the first thorough treatise on actuarial theory. With four leaves of publisher's adverts to the rear for Encyclopaedia Metropolitana (dated January 1826). This work was the first, and most reliable of its time, with regards insurance actuarial tables. It is also Babbage's first substantial published work. Babbage was inspired to write this work due to a lack in statistical science regarding the calculations of insurance businesses. Prior to this publication, Babbage was approached by a life insurance company to provide tables for their business. However, this insurance company was ultimately never formed. This work surveys that field and contains thirteen tables of premiums, equitable experience, mortality statistics and more. These tables were regarded as the most reliable at the time and Babbage intended to provide the wider public with knowledge of this strain of mathematics and make them aware of the lack of science being used by the insurance businesses. The DNB notes this work to be 'at least in part, a work of consumer protection with Babbage self-cast as champion of the expose&apos. Babbage states to the preface he is 'exposing the disgraceful practices&apos. 'A Comparative View' quickly became a classic in actuarial theory and is demonstrative of the statistically minded work Babbage continued to pursue throughout his life. The German translation of this work formed the basis for the Life Assurance Bank of Gotha. A fascinating work, written by a noted polymath. Babbage is considered by many to be the 'father of the computer', as he is credited with inventing the first mechanical computer. A very smart copy of this significant scientific work. In a half calf binding with paper covered boards. Externally, very smart with just some minor fading to the spine. Minor chip to the bottom of title page. Small crease to the head of title page at the extremity. Title page is faded slightly. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are generally bright and clean. Near Fine . Ill.: None. Near Fine .

The Ninth Bridgewater Treatise. A fragment.
London, Murray 1837. Octavo publisher's cloth with paper spine label (the bottom of the spine and the front edge of the top board neatly repaired, some insect nibbling around the edges of the cloth and of the label); ppxxii,xxiii-240,241-244*, (H3 numbered 101 on recto as is H4), and single page publisher's list. Front endpaper foxed, diminishing to a few spots on the title, inside a very good fresh copy). The label with the price 9s6d.
¶ First edition. I doubt that anything that ever came to Babbage's notice didn't enrage him. This, the unoffical and uninvited Bridgewater Treatise, Babbage was forced to write by Whewell's attack, in his official Bridgewater Treatise, on the compatibility of science and religion, a 'prejudice which I had believed to have been long eradicated from every cultured mind'. First among the 'relative positions' of the subjects under discussion is pure mathematics (whose truths are necessary truths) and he brings his Calculating Engine into use early in the book - and we end up with a mechanical universe with God as the writer of evolutionary programs. *This copy has the extra four pages of corrections that don't appear in all copies. These correct his chapter and appended note on Hume's argument against miracles.

Book, Charles Babbage KH FRS (1791-1871) was an English polymath, a mathematician, philosopher, inventor and mechanical engineer, Babbage originated the concept of a digital programmable computer. Considered by some to be a "father of the computer", Babbage is credited with inventing the first mechanical computer that eventually led to more complex electronic designs, though all the essential ideas of modern computers are to be found in Babbage's Analytical Engine. His varied work in other fields has led him to be described as "pre-eminent" among the many polymaths of his century. (wiki). From the Preface: This present volume may be considered as one of the consequences that have reulted from the Calculating-Engine, the construction of which I have been so long superintending .....". With appendix and index, 408 pages, with prefaces for the first three eds and many tables . Said to be one of his most famous books on science and economics, in which he demonstrates his principles of waste not and want not to the nth degree" . The book is tight and clean though with all edges in gilt though there is a water stain on the illlustrated title page only and the spine has the appearance of having been glued. There are a few light neat pencil notes as seen.The black leather? boards are rubbed at the edges and corners as is the spine which has raised bands and a gilt title and date. Looks a late Vicrtoian or early 20th century professional rebind.See scans and email for more. Near Very Good.
