Default For sale FE Terman books. 5.00 each plus postage

FOR SALE: Radio Engineering(1937), Radio Engineers Handbook(1943) and Measurements in Radio Engieering(1935). All in very good condition but there is a very old smell(not damp or mildew) to them. Maybe it's the smell of Old Bermondsey(birthplace of Captain Mullard) where they were kept for many years. 5.00 each book plus 3.10 postage. Les.

I also have those three books by Terman. They are worth adding to one's library to occasionally refresh the memory of fundamental considerations in design, construction, measurement and test: fundamentals never change.

I also have a set. Good reference on just where various ideas came from. Smart cookie and the whole of silicon valley traces back to him.

I also have a set + "Fundamentals of Radio". Excellent reference works which keep the maths in sight of the original analysis. I think the smell is built in - mine have been well stored, but there is a rather distinctive slight odour, maybe inherent to McGraw-Hill printing at the time.

Leon.

I would like to buy the Radio Engineers Handbook if it is still available.

I will investigate the measurement book online and come back to you.

I will buy the set if they are still available.

I have a 1947 copy of Radio Engineering but it does not appear to cover subjects in as much detail as the other books.

I will send a PM.
