New Consignor Shop – College-Level Physics, Math, Electronics and a Touch of Nostalgia

Electronic Circuit

Introducing a New Consignor’s Shop!

College-Level Physics, Math, Electronics, and Computer Engineering

Technologically-minded students may appreciate this assortment of Physics, higher level Mathematics, Electronics, Electrical Engineering, and Computer Science selections. Although many of these volumes are from the early years of computer engineering, their contents hold value because of their presentation of foundational concepts. The same holds true for the Physics and Math books.

Computer historians can appreciate some of these volumes as well; the Electronics, Electrical Engineering and Computer textbooks were written by some of the Deans of their field, including James Martin.

A Touch of Nostalgia

Childcraft in Fourteen Volumes is a collection that began way back in the early 1930s and grew as time marched on. This set is the 1949 edition and contains a wealth of childhood stories, poems, fairy tales, nature appreciation, science and technology topics, and for the parent and teacher, an overview of child development from birth and into adolescence. There’s a plan for putting the set’s contents all together to give your family years of enjoyment.

When it comes time to study American History, the Pictorial Encyclopedia from the late 1960s presents an interesting perspective. The articles highlight events in American history from 1450 to 1966 in 16 volumes.

A Few More Items Coming

Our new consignor has a few more items for engineers, mathematicians, and students of Galileo. We’ll let you know when they’ve hit our shelves. In the meantime, enjoy!

Update: Slide Rules and Galileo Thermometer

You might have already seen these when they popped up in our main catalog, but here they are: two Pickett slide rules and one Galileo Thermometer! These are now in our “Educational Aids” department, but even so, they are for anyone who’d like to use or display them!
