Addiators and other slide adders - an alphabetical catalogue

A few years ago our member Kees Nagtegaal began with an alphabetical catalogue of addiators and other slide adders.

You can find the result on his website:

There is also a webpage in Rechnerlexikon

Now in the fourth edition (September 2016) there are more than 420 pictures. Everybody can download the PDF-file of this book.
