A book that might be of specific interest for HN’s audience is the recent production for Standard Ebooks I did of Charles Babbage’s autobiography:

It covers a plethora of subjects, but devotes a few chapters to the Difference Engine and the political difficulties in getting it funded. Bonus MathML (rendered to PNGs in most readers but real for the Kobo), and all diagrams support both normal and white-on-black dark mode if you’re got your reader set up like that.
