Has nice color photographs of various radios and televisions from crystal radios up to and including transistor radios. Also features early televisions with a paragraph and value. More of a coffee table book because it covers a wide area and only gives a small sampling of information and not for a true collector. My experience with Antique Trader has been with a much larger sampling and that is what I expected when purchasing this book. Not worth the price from my perspective.
This was a gift for my Dad. He has lots of old radios and TV's so I thought he would like this book. It does have alot of old radios and tv's but alot of the info is incorrect. Some radios said the they were made with certain items or certain pieces that they really didn't. So while the book was quite helpful for my Dad the writer needs to do a little more research on the items.
If you like old radio and tvs, you'll like this one.
Thanks Great History for the hobby!
I keep this book among my references right next to me while shopping for antique radios. It has many items not listed in other publications.
Very little info on the value of old radios.
