Notes: "First described by Seth Partridge in 1661, the sliding Gunter gets its name from having two lines of logarithmically spaced numbers (Gunterís lines) that slide next to each other, as opposed to a Gunterís scale which has a single Gunterís line which requires the user to use chart dividers or compasses."
