Vintage

In our catalog, we consider an item as “vintage” when it is 30 years or older. We’ve grouped our books and textbooks under this category based on their physical ages (i.e., dates of publication, not necessarily that of copyright). Some of these items may be considered collectible for any number of reasons, such as they are now out of print or they are first editions, while others may still hold value and usability today, such as math textbooks.

  • Introduction to Switching Theory and Logical Design - First Edition (Hardback)

    Introduction to Switching Theory and Logical Design - First Edition (Hardback)

    $4.29

    "The usefulness of switching theory is not restricted to engineers actively engaged in computer design. In fact, it is our contention that almost every design engineer in the field of electronics will have some opportunity to draw on the subject. Applications occur whenever information in communication, control, or instrumentation systems, for example, is handled in other than analog form." — Frederick J. Hill and Gerald R. Peterson, Authors

  • Introduction to Switching Theory and Logical Design - Third Edition (Hardback)

    Introduction to Switching Theory and Logical Design - Third Edition (Hardback)

    $4.99

    "In the field of digital computers, there is an area somewhere between circuit design and system formulation which is usually identified as switching theory. Although this topic must be mastered by the digital computer engineer, it does not answer all of the questions concerning layout of an efficient digital computing system. The remaining questions, which are less susceptible to formalization, may be grouped under the heading 'Digital System Theory.'" — F. J. Hill and G. R. Peterson, Authors

L. Meriam, Author

    Cathedral: The Story of Its Construction (Paperback)

    $3.99

    "This marvelous book recreates the building of a French Gothic cathedral, from the hewing down of half of a forest to the placement of the ast sheet of lead on the spire. Macaulay uses voluminous knowledge and pen-and-ink sketches, accompanied by a brief, clear narrative ... By changing his viewpoint, he powerfully conveys the immense rook-filled heights of the cathedral." — Time Magazine

    $2.50

    "This essay offers a novel explanation of the rise of Lenin and Stalin. It attempts to view the emergence of Russian communism as an integral part of European and global history, treating it, as it should have been from the start, as a problem of comparative studies, not as an isolated phenomenon to be explained largely from Russian condition alone." — Theodore H. Von Laue, Author
