So is mine. I knew an old man who sold used books at a flea market,
and when he found that I was interested in the older electronics books
he would put aside anything he found till I got a look at them. I
bought quite a few from him, but he died of cancer a few years ago, and
I haven't seen another good deal, other than Skolnik's RADAR book.
