About this Item: C. Wolf & Sohn, Munich, 1892. Dyck, Walther von (1856-1934). Katalog mathematischer und mathematisch-physikalischer Modelle, Apparate und Instrumente. 8vo. xv, [1], 430pp. Text wood-engravings. Munich: K. Hof- u. Universit?tsbuchdruckerei von Dr. C. Wolf & Sohn, 1892. 242 x 162 mm. Modern half cloth. Title a bit soiled, otherwise fine. First Edition. The earliest recorded exhibition catalogue limited to mathematical instruments and calculating devices. The catalogue was edited by Walther Dyck (he received the ennobling "von" later in his life), who studied mathematics at several German universities, receiving his doctorate in 1879 at the University of Munich under the supervision of Felix Klein. He spent most of his career in Munich, where he taught at the Technische Hochschule and was instrumental in creating the Deutsches Museum of Natural Science and Technology, the first of its kind. Dyck was interested in applied as well as pure mathematics, and stressed the importance of mathematical training for engineers. He became the first secretary of the Deutsche Mathematiker-Vereinigung, founded in September 1890 as an offshoot of the Gesellschaft deutscher Naturforscher und ?rtze. As one of the first projects of this new mathematical organization, Dyck organized the international exhibition of mathematical models, instruments, and apparatus described in the Katalog and in a supplement published a year later (not present here). Among the devices described and illustrated in the Katalog are Ludwig Boltzmann's "Apparat zur mechanischen Versinnlichung des Verhaltens zweier elektrischer Str?me (Bicycle)" (Apparatus for the mechanical representation of the behavior of two electric currents); Francis Galton's "Trace-Computer, Apparat zum Auftragen von Curven, deren Ordinaten gegebene Functionen zweier anderer Curven sind (Trace-Computer, apparatus for tracing curves whose ordinates are the given functions of two other curves), Lord Kelvin's harmonic analyzer and tide predictor, and a harmonic analyzer built by Arnold Sommerfeld and E. Wiechert. All of the annotations describing the instruments in the catalogue are signed by their contributors. Randell 1982a, 461. Origins of Cyberspace 287. 38448. Seller Inventory # 38448
