Description
Auguste Leopold Crelle (1780-1855) was a German engineer, mathematician, and civil servant perhaps best known as the founding editor of the Journal für die reine und angewandte Mathematik. Crelle also published textbooks and mathematical tables. He first published a volume of what came to be called in 1820 in Berlin. It contained the products of all integers from 1 to 1000. Revised editions were published throughout the nineteenth and twentieth century until at least as late as 1954. From 1907, until at least the appearance of this edition in Berlin in 1938, the tables were edited by Oskar Seeliger of Potsdam.
This example of the publication was owned by the German- American statistician, mathematician and computer pioneer Carl Hammer (1914-2004).
