Henry Prevost Babbage (1824-1918), the youngest son of Charles Babbage (1791-1871), the English computer pioneer, built a hand-operated printing calculator, based on the plans for the mill of his father's Analytical Engine. It was a four-function calulator designed for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
