Reviews - What do customers think about The Thermionic Vacuum Tube-Physics and Electronics?

The Definitive Work  Nov 10, 2003
Hendrik van der Bijl wrote The Thermionic Vacuum Tube around 1920, in the height of the Radio Era.

The Thermionic Valve is the glowing vacuum tube, or "sweep tubes" used in old tube radios. Anyone reading this review most likely knows their use has declined since the transistor radio, but tubes are still in quite common use in restored pieces, and high-end and hand-made hi-fi and stereo equipment, thanks to the superior sound that can be gotten through their use.

For the amateur building his first practicable tube radio, this book is unnecessary. Instructions on the Internet provided by hobbyists will serve better. However, once the amateur advances beyond following simple instructions, and begins to wish to create his own designs using equipment suited expressly to his own needs, this book begins to have a great deal of relevance.

The Thermionic Vacuum Tube is still the definitive work in this field. It was written by a brilliant engineer for other engineers; it has been used as a text -although it was not written as one- in countless classes the world over. This book will not prove to be an easy read, but it will contain more information than any dozen modern textbooks.

For engineers working in an antiquated field, for radio enthusiasts and advanced hobbyists, and for collectors of old knowledge, this book is simply invaluable.
