Description

A great early television principles reference book written in the pre-war and war-era, for Hazeltine Electronics Corporation executives.  There are 13 chapters, from 1938 to 1940, and a superb year-by-year subject bibliography references up to the year 1944.  Much of the book is on the technical side, with circuits and equations, but there are plenty of line-art illustrations and some photographs.  No television set receivers are illustrated, however.

Although this book was primarily intended for internal Hazeltine viewing, there is a note in the front of the book that states:  ""Additional copies in limited quantities are available to licensees of the Hazeltine Corporation.."  Over the years, only a few copies have surfaced on eBay, and online.  Selling prices ranged from fifty-dollars to over three-hundred.
