Dr. Franz Hammer of Stuttgart, while researching Johann
Kepler's papers, discovered some letters from Wilhelm
Schickard, a professor at the University of Tubingen.
In a letter dated, September, 1623, Schickard wrote, "The
same thing which you have done by hand calculation, I have
just recently tried to do in a mechanical way."
