We are very fortunate to have come across this 1949 edition of The Radio Amateur’s Handbook. Doing the arithmetic, it turned 60 years old this year. For its age, it is in pretty good condition. All of the pages are present and accounted for. The binding has been solidly reinforced by 73 Radio Row’s bindery. For radio amateurs who like rigs that glow in the dark, this handbook is an excellent addition to your reference library. As its Table of Content shows, this 26th edition covers the gamut of amateur radio, showcasing the technology of its time. An accompanying photograph shows the legendary 6L6 beehive-coil crystal-controlled transmitter for 40 meters. A classic, this rig has been copied and duplicated dozens of times over the decades. Note, too, that this edition includes lots of pages dedicated to vacuum tube characteristics and a huge number of tube pin-out guides. An added bonus: Classic illustrations by artist Phil “Gil” Gildersleeve - a famed QST contributor for many years. This is a collector’s item, for sure.
