Electricity for Boys

  • First edition, first impression. A stylishly-jacketed book on electricity that teaches the principles of electromagnetism, explains how electricity is generated and transmitted, and describes its domestic and industrial uses such as telephones, telegraphs, television, transportation, and electroplating. Of particular interest are the photographs of contemporary power stations such as Battersea and Deptford, and the interior of the BBC control room at Broadcasting House in London.

  • London: Ivor Nicholson and Watson, 1936. Octavo. Original red remainder binding, titles to spine in black and to upper board in blind. With the dust jacket. Frontispiece and 33 plates from photographs. Light spotting to edges of text block, spine a little rolled. An excellent copy in the jacket that is lightly rubbed at the extremities with a few nicks and a short closed tear to the lower panel.
