    my uncle was an engineer with General Dynamics Corporation in
    California back in the 60's and 70's. When he passed away, our family
    found that he had left some books on electronics and engineering and I
    was just wondering if any of these books were of interest to anyone.
    Here is what I have:

    - Voltage Regulator Handbook - National Semiconductor Corporation 1981
    - Modern Recording Techniques - Robert E. Runstein - 1974
    - Fundamentals of Engineering Drawing - Revised Edition - Warren J.
    Luzadder - 1943-1946
    - Motorola Power Transistor Handbook - Theory, Design Characteristics
    and Application
    - Handbook of Mathematical Tables and Formulas - Richards Stevens
    Burington, PhD, 1949
    - TTL Data Book - Fairchild, Semiconductor SSI/MSI TTL Products, 1978
    - TTL Cookbook - Don Lancaster , 1974
    - Radio Engineering - Frederick Emmons Terman, Sc.D, 1932
    - Basic Mathematics for Electronics. 4th Edition, Cooke and Adams,
    - Silicone Zener Diode and Rectifier Handbook - Theory, Design
    Characteristics and Applications, Motorola 1961
    - Allied's Radio Data Handbook - Allied Radio Corporation, Chicago.
    Written and compiled by technical staff of Allied Radio Corporation,

    If these are just old, outdated books I will give them to GoodWill, if
    anyone is interested in any of these, please email me

    thank you,

    Try auctioning them on e-bay?
  3. If I were you I would keep Termans book And the Allied Radio book. If
    they are not already collectors books they will be.
    My copy of Terman is an First edition/eleventh impression 1935. Its
    printed on a casein coated paper. A really beautiful old book.
    The others excepting the Motorola zener data book would be useful to
    practicing Engineers or someone interested in learning electronics.

    The Motorola book will probably not end up as a collectable to the
    antiquarian book trade for a while. But it would certainly be of
    interest to an Electronically knowledgeable collector.
