I have one you may be interested in. "An Anthology of Philips Research 1891- 1966" 476 pages, 12" x 12" approx., many nice photos(B+W only). The spine has fallen apart but it has all pages with no damage or marks. I got it years ago for $.10CDN at a UBC book sale and I am using it for a mousepad right now.

Paul, As a fellow lover of old electrical books, let me congratulate you! I've got one from Bodine Electrical Motors, about the same era. Didn't it cost you more for shipping than it did to purchase the book?...S

I like old books too! My pride and joy is a 1923 Los Angeles Wiremans Handbook. It has NEC rules along with LA rules, and a bunch of formulas and diagrams. It is the size that most "pocket" books are now. I will email Bill a poster from the inside of it, so he can post it here. Pretty neat stuff.
I also found a 1893 "Farmer's Pocket Companion" by John Deere Plow Co., which is a catalog of plows, as well as monthly memorandum pages. That's right, I said 1893, not 1993. that makes it 110 years old this year. Wouldn't you know it, it was published by "Plowman Publishing Comapny"
