Chadwick’s rule is possibly the last design of 2-foot, 2-fold slide rule.
J. Chadwick, an engineer from Manchester, published his "Slide Rule Instructor
for the Instruction on Chadwick’s Improved Slide Rule" possibly as late as 1905.
This beautiful example has no maker’s name on it and another quite unusual
collection of gauge points and is amongst the most unusual of the 2-2 slide rules.
