    Sir William Crooke's Periodic Table:

    Walter Russell's Periodic Table:

    Edgar Longman's Periodic Table

    Theodor Benfey's Periodic Table:

    Paul Giguère's Periodic Table:

    James Franklin Hyde's Periodic Table:

    Most with the exception of the Mendeleev table are arranged in a spiral pattern. Please feel free to add others if you find them, I know I have missed some.
