Electronics Books, eh?

This post at Professor Reynolds' place got me to thinking. There once was a book that was the premier work on electronics - for the medical or biological laboratory, not for educating children, however.



It was this one:


SBN 683-08090-3, Library of Congress Catalog Card Number 70-147900.

In 1971, when this work came out, there was nothing comparable. The author explained that over the next couple of years it started to sell and gain some reputation. Then...the Silicon Revolution came and that was that. It is still a fascinating look at the time when certain technology had started to come into medicine and biology, and the change in training and education needed to come to grips with it.

And in time it will come to be an archaeological snapshot of what technology was like in those days--if it isn't already.
