Vol 1 and 2, first ed 1955. They are by far the best books for audio beginners I have ever seen. Vol 1 is power supply based and Vol 2 is a triodes/audio wonderland for newbies. (other volumes 3-6 are not audio related) Simple, not too deep, very well illustrated in a campy mid-50's flare and is very entertaining and gets the essentials right.
If you can find Vol 1 or 2 in a library or used book store, get it!
I know this was posted a long time ago, but I searched and found a seller who had the full set in great condition for $25. Such a deal and now in the eve of life I'm recapping stuff I sort of knew when I was in my twenties. AND, I just picked up a tube amp out of an organ that I hope to modify for use with my turntable. Yep, I know to keep my fingers and screw drivers out of the way.

A great resource about tubes and many circuits is "Radiotron Designers Handbook", edited by Langford Smith, 1953 ed. It is a fairly complete source of such information, but may be a little hard to obtain.

You can download them HERE. I do have the original hardbound set but I usually read the PDF these days.

I did print this manual. For any others who wish to, there are over 80 pages so top up your printer paper.
