About the Edition

Two hundred years ago, a daughter was born to the famous poet, Lord Byron, and his mathematical wife, Annabella. She would go down in history as Ada Lovelace, the first computer programmer. Like her father, Ada had a strong imagination and a gift for connecting ideas in original ways. Like her mother, she had a passion for science, math, and machines. It was a very good combination. Ada hoped that one day she could do something important with her beautiful mind.
