A Basic Slide Rule Manual

This book is a shorter version of another manual written by the author which is titled, "A Complete Slide Rule Manual", and which seems to have been used as a text in some advanced tertiary courses in Australia in the early 1970's. This basic version is a more introductory document but it still covers a good range of operations for Log and Trig.
