The back cover has the Dewey Decimal code written and some marks . the pocket has been torn out, leaving a scar inside the back cover. Our book number 762.

7 Rider, John H. Automatic Frequency Control Systems

Third edition, December 1938. Previous owner's name inside front cover. Green Cloth binding with gold lettering. As a college student the engineer who owned this book used it to assist him in the repair of bootleggers' state-of-the-art radios at Sam's Radio Shop in Tulsa. This book has been through a flood. The research engineer who owned the book dried it very carefully in the sun, but the glue has sagged and there are some surface wrinkles on the cover. Inside the pages are clean and flat, no mildew or warping. You should have seen him, knee-deep in water, saving the library of technical books as quickly as possible. Sacrifice to put the next generation through Gaming College.
