The 'Consul' Calculator
An educated monkey.
A device for "Arithmetical Multiplication and Division" was patented in 1889 in Munich, and rapidly became the model for a whole row of mechanical calculators. The most popular of these was "Consul", the calculating monkey, who saw the light of day in the USA in 1916 and continued to be produced there up to the 1970s as an educational toy.
Warning! Collector’s model not suitable for children under 14 years of age.
