Hello,

I found a website with a lot of "old technical books online"
http://www.pmillett.com/tecnical_books_online.htm

Want to help? If you have any pre-1964 books relating to vacuum tube technology,
radio, or electronics that you'd like to sacrifice, let me know.
And when I say "sacrifice", I really do mean sacrifice - the way I do this is to cut the book loose from it's cover, then slice the pages away from the binding.
This way I can send it through an automatic document feeder.
I can scan a 400 page book in about one hour.
I'll have to verify that the copyright is expired and has not been reviewed - I can do that before you send anything.
[/qoute]

Greetings,
Bertus

Some of those old tube books are outstanding. The sad thing is that eventually tubes will be "out of print" just as these books are. It's almost tragic. A few years ago I did consulting work for a company that purchased a subdivision of Phillips that made one particular tube that is still being manufactured and sold. This tube is only now being surpassed by modern approaches, and the people that know how to make the tube are at retirement age. Soon, the only tubes will be unsold stock, and eventually these will be gone.
