Default woohoo! RDH4!!!

not often I get excited over buying a 1.5 kilogram 1495 pg text book written over half a century ago, but a pristine copy of RDH4 for $2 is worth celebrating.

And I have nighttime reading for a year. Or two.

Yep, it sure is. Helluva find there. (I got the RDH-4 as a *.pdf.) Very good source there.

Maybe an even better copy is one that is written all over with little notes by some dude from Mullard or Bell labs!

No such luck actually - just an inscription on the frontpiece assuring Michael that Mum and Dad love him and wish him a happy Christmas in 1961.

I suspect, given the state of the book, that he was less enthusiastic than they imagined... Its in beautiful, near new condition!

I paid nearly $50 some twenty odd years ago (just before the internet) for a hardcover RDH4 missing a couple of dozen pages at the very end. I think you did very well..

Excellent buy. Now go and find Tremaine's "Audio Cyclopedia" for some really useful audio information.

Wow. It would take me 10 years to read that. And I have to read things 4 times before I understand them. That would make me 90, just enough time to slap something simple together before I'm gone (I hope.)
