About the Book



The ARRL Antenna Book First Edition is the first edition of the famed ARRL Antenna Book series that no ham is without. This paperback edition is one copy of the 25,000 copies printed in September of 1939. AS the book is 77 years old it is in fair condition for that age. There is some wear on the covers but they are still fairly good. The spine is worn from age but has been taped with clear tape at one point. At one time it appears to have been exposed to water but thee only a few pages affected (without affecting their readability). This a good find for a collector.
