Summary
This is a paperbound reprint of a 2004 book. History enthusiast Essinger tracks the evolution of Jacquard's machine, a set of punched cards that directed patterns produced on silk looms, finding that Jacquard adapted (but did not invent) the system primarily to corner the silk weaving market. Jacquard soon saw the concept sliding from salon to workshop floor to other factories. Essinger tracks it all the way, right up to the introduction of the commercial computer about 200 years later.
