Collectors Item: 'Fundamentals of Transistors,' Circa 1954

16.00

“Fundamenals of Transistors,” by Leonard Krugman, is one of the most famous books written during the dawn of the solid state revolution. It was published in 1954, just 7 years after William Shockley, John Bardeen and Walter Brittain invented the transistor in late 1947 at Bell Laboratories. It gives a snapshot of the technology that would ultimately supplant the vacuum tube. Krugman covers the subject from semiconductor physics and high-frequency applications to amplifiers and oscillators. The book takes a deep dive into grounded base, emitter and collector applications. There is a small tear on the front cover and the usual wear-and-tear of a softback book that is almost old enough to qualify for Medicare. The binding is solid. It is a real collectors’ item.
