Hemmi Slide Rule Catalogue Raisonné  
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 (click here) contains descriptions of Hemmimade slide rules for which I have not been able to determine a model number. These 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.
