 Listing of Antique Radio Literature for Sale

At a recent hamfest I purchased a small stack of antique radio documents with the idea of listing them here in the hope of uniting some of them with owners of the respective radios.  Unless otherwise noted they are service bulletins, service data or service notes for home entertainment radios manufactured in the 1930s, and early 1940s by GE, RCA Victor, Stromberg-Carlson and Westinghouse.  They are listed by Mfg. in a roughly model number order.   I do not have any owner's manuals for the models listed.  Also at the end of the table are some more recent documents from my files for equipment that I no longer own.  Some of these are noted as copies.

Searching for a model number:  To see if documentation for a model that you are interested is here use the browsers CTRL+F find function.  Don't search for "RCA  KA-9".  Just try KA-9, KA 9 and KA9.

The prices are modest considering that these are all original documents, not copies.  I only hope to recover my purchase price, mailing costs and a little for my trouble.    Purchases will be mailed unfolded in a large envelope via first-class mail with the postage to US addresses included in the price.   This is the only shipping method available.  All sales are final, and as items are sold they will be removed from the list. 

If you are interested making a purchase please contact me first. My C0ntacting US page has my e-mail and mailing addresses and my telephone number. 

Other sources for this type of literature are: AntiqueRadioSchematics ,  Playthings of the PastA. G. Tannenbaum , Steve's Antique Technology and Just Radios  , if these fail you might try my listing of  Sources for Radio & Test Equipment Manuals .

Condition:   The condition information is a quick rough appraisal and is provided as a courtesy only.  The condition and the price are not related.  These documents must have been stored with reasonable care as most are in fairly good condition for their age.  However, all are are at least slightly yellowed. 

    E   =  Excellent   (Slight yellowing - otherwise near perfect)
    VG = Very Good (Yellowing, slight marks, slight edge wear, no folds, stains or tears)
    G  =  Good         (Yellowing, slight (marks, edge wear, folds, stains or tears))
    F  =  Fair            (Deeper yellowing, and/or more noticeable edge wear, marks, folds, stains or tears)
    P  =  Poor          (Deeper yellowing, with substantial edge wear, marks, folds, stains or tears)
