Reference Data: General Electric Ceramic Tubes - January 1965

By General Electric Technical Writing Staff

While there is noticeable wear on the paper cover from storage and use, these books rarely ever survived a year or so in an active tech shop. This Reference Book is complete, and is free of any major marks or stains, and very few small pencil notations (I saw 3 or 4) on the inside pages. The plastic comb spine is unbroken.

Everybody's Radio Manual

By Editorial Staff of Popular Electronics

This is a collectible and (gentle) reading copy. Significant wear from handling and use, but generally intact. This book was originally published during World War II, with this printing coming a short time after the war. The cover is starting to split from the pages, as can be seen when opening the book to the first set of content pages near the front of the book.

Fundamentals of Selecting and Using Oscilloscopes (Circa 1961)

By Tektronix, Inc. Technical Writing Staff

This TEN page Technical Guide on selecting the correct OSCILLOSCOPE (TEKTRONIX, of course) are reprints from two of the then, (1960) recent articles in EDN (Electrical Design News), a major industrial electronic products news magazine. The Front Cover does present several little stain spots, the back cover is less so afflicted. The inside pages are free of marks, writing or stains. Both of the corners opposite the spine have been bent, but not creased. Nevertheless, the rippling remains.

Sylvania Technical Manual (Late 1950s)

By Sylvania/ General Telephone Technical Writing Staff

This is a USED copy of this title. Emphasis on used. The book is complete and intact, but shows a bit of wear. Almost all of the index tabs have been worn off. The flexible cover is intact, albeit misshapen and suffering a few minor cracks. What you do get is a complete data sheet set for all of the Sylvania Tubes manufactured at the time of the catalogs publication. It is undated, but based on the Edition and Printing Number, it would be estimated to be a late 1950s Vintage.
