Curta Mechanical Calculator, a small, hand-cranked mechanical calculator introduced by Curt Herzstark in 1948. It can be used to perform addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and (with more difficulty) square roots and other operations.  considered the best portable calculators available until they were displaced by electronic calculators in the 1970s.

In 1642 Blaise Pascal, at age 19, invented the Pascaline. Pascal's device used a series of toothed wheels, which were turned by hand and which could handle numbers up to 999,999.999. Pascal's device was also called the "numerical wheel calculator" and was one of the world's first mechanical adding machines.

The Pascaline, invented by Blaise Pascal in France in was a mechanical calculator that could add and subtract directly.

Expo Brussels World's Fair: Before Texas Instruments, there was the mechanical calculator, this one from the fair with an image of Atomium at the top.

Addiator was a mechanical calculator. I never trusted the results and recalculated them manually.

The Antikythera Mechanism by Michæl Paukner -- This mechanism is an ancient mechanical calculator designed to calculate astronomical positions. It was recovered in 1900-01 from the Antikythera wreck, but its complexity and significance were not understood until decades later. It is now thought to have been built about 100-150 BC. Technological artifacts of similar complexity did not reappear until the 14th century, when mechanical astronomical clocks appeared in Europe.
