About the Book

This hardback edition of The ‘Radio’ Handbook Sixteenth Edition can be considered as being in good condition. There is a couple of writings in the first couple of pages, mostly the names of former owners. There are some stains on the edges of the pages but the pages themselves aren’t damaged.

This collector’s item was edited by William (Bill) Ittner Orr (1919-2001), amateur radio licensee W6SAI.
