Radio Boys Book: At Mountain Pass

Radio Boys Book: At Mountain Pass

-or- The Midnight Call for Assistance. This 1922 book is the fourth in a series of Radio Boys books by Allen Chapman. Its 218 pages portray an enthusiasm of clean wholesomeness of a bygone era. From the Foreword written by Jack Binns of the New York Tribune: "Although the radio boys in this case are but creatures of the author's imagination, nonetheless they are typical of all the men who have taken part in bringing radio to its present stage. Even Marconi himself likes to take pride in the assertion that he too was at one time an amateur, because he insists that during his early experiments he was only a boy amateur tinkering with the little known subject. There is undoubtedly a great deal of truth in his claim, because the experiments that led to his success were made while he was a youth studying at the Bologna University in Italy." For 100 years of age, the wear on this book reflects on it to be in very good condition. There is minimal staining on the faded blue cloth cover. All pages are present and complete, and have not been dog eared. $40.00. (1720120)

 

Radio Boys Book: At Oceans Point

From the book's Forward written by Jack Binns, the well-known radio expert of the New York Tribune, "There is no doubt about the interesting of broadcasting; and equally, there is no doubt about the importance of radio as a means of lifesaving." With this thought in mind, I think that the present volume, detailing the adventures of the Radio Boys, serves a very useful purpose in that it forcibly portrays the use of wireless to bring aid to a disabled ship on the high seas in a storm. The blue cloth cover is faded with minimal wear due to 100 years of reading enjoyment. All pages are present and complete and have not been dog eared reflecting how it has been valued. $40.00.

The Forward was written by magazine book editor Jack Binns who wrote, "Fifteen years ago when radio amateurs first began to send out wireless telegraph messages, the Federal authorities in Washington were at a loss to devise some means that would regulate them...Faced with the inexorable regulation, they set to work to devise apparatus which would operate successfully. Among them was E.H. Armstrong." The blue cloth book cover shows fading wear from 100 years of reading enjoyment.

The boyhood of America more than any other nation has been absorbed with radio since Marconi first demonstrated its practical use."

So splendidly have these two functions of radio been developed, that they have become accepted as commonplace in our lives, and it is only by such stories as 'The Radio Boys with the Forest Rangers' that we are awakened to their importance." This book has been enjoyed by owners from Massachusetts to Oregon. The values they held of the book are reflected in that the pages have not been dog eared and are all present and complete.

About Charles Kent's Radio Attic
Restoration Philosophy: Leaving the radio in original condition is my philosophy.  When necessary I professionally restore and repaint.  Any repairs and any cosmetic flaws are completely disclosed.  The age of radios being 80-90 years old are not meant to be played all the time.  We all love playing radios but one needs to recognize they should not be played all of the time. 

Shipping: Buyer pays shipping and handling.  Over the years I have received praise for excellent radio packing.  I use double walled boxes, wrap the radio in bubble wrap.  I use professional packing paper leaving at least 2 inches between the wrapped radio and box.  By using this method and shipping FedEx ground I have a damage free record.

Warranty:  I offer a 30 warranty on electronics.  All radios are tested to make sure they are playing before shipping, if sold to be playing.  If your radio arrives not playing please contact me and I will offer suggestions to get it working as handling during shipping may have loosened a component.  Please notify me within 48 hours of receiving the radio.  Returns must be approved by the seller.  Buyer pays shipping to seller and seller will pay to ship it back to buyer.
