The Robot Book (A Harvest book) Paperback –  1978 by Robert Malone

Series: A Harvest/HBJ book
Paperback: 159 pages, 10.8 x 8.4 x 0.6 inches
Publisher: Book World Promotions; First Edition edition 1978
ISBN-10: 0156784521

Printed circuits showing through the mechanical cover man's cutout eyeballs. Outstanding cover art. Loaded with pictures--of old machines, mechanical toys, scenes from plays, movie stills, art works, covers from the early sci-fi pulps, computers of all generations--and in fact the Malone is mostly pictures and captions, with a running column of text that functions chiefly as an automatic scanner of robot-related landmarks.

Very Good Softcover. First paperback. Very good showing a scratching where the price tag was and a few shelfwear rubbings This is such a fun book to scan through! Text body is clean, and free from previous writings. Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact.

Stewart Brand (Editor)

"This catalog of catalogs is extremely interesting to anyone who wants to remember two decades ago, or to anyone who wants to be mesmerized by the written materials that were available at the time."

"Great graphic design inspiration."

The Whole Earth Catalog functions as an evaluation and access device. With it, the user should know better what is worth getting and where and how to do the getting.

We are as gods and we might as well get used to it. So far remotely done power and glory - as via government, big business, formal education, church - has succeeded to the point where gross defects obscure actual gains. In response to this dilemma and to these gains a realm of intimate, personal power is developing - the power of individuals to conduct their own education, find their own inspiration, shape their own environment, and share the adventure with whoever is interested. Tools that aid this process are sought and promoted by The Next Whole Earth Catalog.

All three volumes, very good condition for the age: Pages very clean, no writing. Only slight edge wear and slightly bumped corners.

The Book of Firsts - Robertson, Patrick. Bramhall House, 1982.

Hundreds of authentic "firsts" are fully recorded in this remarkable book. A very important part of this book is the Chronology, of some 6,000 items, that places not only the "firsts" described in the text, but also many thousands of others in historical perspective. The illustrations - more than 100 - provide, in themselves, a fascinating social and historical record of Man's genius for invention and innovation.

Very Good - 1982. Believed first edition. Hardcover. Binding and pages of book square, clean and tight.  Dust Jacket shows wear to edges, see photos

1955 Civil Aeronautics - Pilot’s Weather Handbook C. A. A. Technical Manual No. 104

“Pilot’s Weather Handbook” was written as a joint project of the U. S. Weather Bureau’s Training Section and Domestic Aviation Section.
 The actual writing was done by J. T. Lee, Meteorologist and Training Specialist, and Carl M. Reber, Meteorologist and Commercial Pilot. Many others also contributed their expertise.

This completely revised edition gives the pilot the authoritative source of information needed to prepare for the CAA pilot qualifications examinations and, more important, to help the pilot cope safely with the weather problems he encounters.

Includes information on basic concepts, temperature, pressure, moisture, air stability, clouds, winds, air masses, frontal weather, thunderstorms, icing and turbulence,
fog and stratus clouds, weather observations and instruments, weather charts, pilot's weather information, flight planning and weather, flying weather in the U.S.,
Sailplane weather as well as a Meteorological Glossary.
