Transcript A. W. FABER'S MANUFACTORY ESTABLISHED 1761. A. W. FABER'S Improved Calculating Rule. Hi'i inches long. Each rule in a linen-covered box. The favorable reception accorded to these Rules is in itself a proof of their utility. A slight alteration has recently been introduced in their shape ; the present Rule being made with only one side beveled, the other side being at right angles. The width of the instrument has in this way been reduced to some extent, rendering it better adapted for pocket use and outdoor purposes. The cross lines of which the scales consist have been bordered by lines running lengthways. This gives a more finished appearance. As previously mentioned, a descriptive pamphlet, consisting of 35 printed pages and 12 sheets of diagrams, has been issued. It contains a full explanation of the Rule, and numerous examples showing the mode of using it, which, with the aid of the diagrams, will be of great service to those who wish to avail themselves of the The number and variety of problems that can be worked out with the of A. W. FABER'S Calculating Rule is almost endless. The Rule is made of boxwood, and the traversing slide of nickeled metal. Thi figuring has been done with the utmost care and distinctness, so as to insure thi greatest accuracy. No. Per doze. 350. A. W. FABER'S Calculating Rules, $30.0 360. Same as above with celluloid face, 30.0 . W. FABER'S MANUFACTORY ESTABLISHED 1761.
