This book is a celebration of the novelty transistor radio, illustrated with a wealth of colour photographs, featuring examples of advertising related radios (including automobiles, food items, beverage related, general, lunch boxes, tote bags, and vending machines), character and figural radios, household and personal use transistors, media stars and heroes, music and home entertainment, robots, rockets and outer-space, sports and recreation, travel and transportation,warfare and weapons, and other miscellaneous examples. An approximate price guide is included which obviously reflected 1995 values, but the book is, nevertheless, of great interest to the collector.
The card covers are clean and fresh and in near fine condition, with just a trace of edge wear and the original price sticker to the rear.
The binding is strong and tight.
There are a few light marks to the page edges.
Internally, the book is clean, glossy and unmarked and in fine condition.
