Slide Rule Catalogue Raisonné 

The Hemmi Catalogue Raisonne (both parts I and II) needs a new home. I'd like someone to take it over and make it bilingual but there are no preconditions. It does require a little work; a few time a year a collector corrects something or provides a better picture. It's been a long time since anyone found a slide rule that's not already listed but I'm sure there are a few out there. Contact me if you are interested. Paul This Catalogue Raisonne describes every slide rule ever made by the Hemmi Slide Rule Company of Japanor at least all those I have been able to identify. It is the most comprehensive catalogue of Hemmi slide rules ever published. There are two parts: (1) This page lists Hemmi slide rules for which a model number is known. (2) The second page contains descriptions of Hemmimade slide rules for which I have not been able to determine a model number. They are usually rules with names rather than numbers or military rules or rules sold under another company's (Post, Foxboro, SKF, etc.) name. Construction material is celluloid on bamboo except for model number which begin with "P" (e.g., "P23") which are all plastic and for a few rules whose substance is explicitly mentioned in the text. This is an updated version of the Comprehensive Hemmi Catalog which was published in the Spring 2003 issue of the Journal of the Oughtred Society. It is based upon about 500 documents, photographs and specimen slide rules, many of which were supplied by my friends in Japan: William Lise, Atsushi Tomozawa, Yukio Kubota and Hitoshi Nori; I cannot begin to express my gratitude to them. Many errors exist in spite of their efforts and this catalog remains a work in progress. I will be grateful to anyone who can supply missing information or pictures or point out errors. I am indebted to Tom Dilatush for prolonged discussions of how this information should be organized and displayed. You may also be interested in A Hemmi Chronology. It lists the important dates and shows how markings on Hemmi rules changed from time to time.
