logarithmic scales

John Napier invented logarithms in 1614. Some years later, maybe in 1620 Edmun Gunter built the first logarithmic scale but it was Wingate three centuries later the first to describe with the book \emph{L'usage de la Reigle de Proportion en l'Arithm\'etique et G\'eom\'etrie} its existence and usability.
