The History of Broadcasting in the United Kingdom - 5 Volume Set

£120.00

Product description

5 volume set, all hardcovers in dust jackets, none price-clipped. Each volume is a first edition; the set is therefore not uniform in jacket design.

Volume 1: "The Birth of Broadcasting". First edition, 1961, green covers. xiv+425pp., including index. Very good+/Good+. The spine of jacket is darkened, and there is some small loss from the top of the back. The book is a little bumped at spine-ends, but is clean and tight, and the four two-leaved fold-out organisational charts following p. 416 are in place. Weight 1000g, size 22 x 15 x 4 cm.

Volume 2: "The Golden Age of Wireless". First edition, 1965, orange covers. xvi+688pp., including index. Very good/Very good. Both book and jacket are a little rubbed and bumped at corners and spine ends. The spine of the jacket has darkened slightly, and it has a few marks. The book is clean and tight however, and the three fold-out organisational charts at p. 664 are in place. Weight 1200g, size 22 x 15 x 5 cm.

Volume 3: "The War of Words". First edition, 1970, ISBN 0192129562, yellow-green covers. xviii+766pp., including index. Very good/Very good. The jacket is slightly rubbed and bumped along edges and at corners. The book is slightly pushed at the base of the spine, and there is a wrinkle across the spine, but the binding is sound and tight. There are a few light marks on the top edge of the page block, but the contents are clean and bright. Weight 1200g, size 22 x 15 x 5 cm.

Volume 4: "Sound and Vision". First edition, 1979, ISBN 0192129678, purple covers. xiv+1082pp., including index. Very good/Very good. The jacket is slightly rubbed front and back, and the spine has faded to brown. The book is a little bumped at spine-ends, and there are a few small spots around the edges of the page block, but the contents are clean and bright and the binding is sound and tight. Weight 1200g, size 22 x 15 x 5 cm.

Volume 5: "Competition". First edition, 1995, ISBN 019215964x, grey covers, xxvi+1133pp., including index. Good+/Good+.
