Default Re: Radio & TV books Volume No's confusion

As this is a sticky thread it's worth pulling together the relevant information spread across the forum regarding the R&TVS volumes published between 1952 and 1987.

Most of the confusion is caused by the variety of volume sets published in the early years up until about 1962. The first key to understanding the models covered by the various volumes and year books is Wainwright's index. A PDF copy of this publication is attached. For completeness the 1986/7 supplement is also attached.

The third PDF shows a table describing some of the early books and volume sets. This was published a few years ago and was based on the recollections of one of the first editors of the series. PLEASE NOTE that this is actually an incomplete account and should be viewed as a guide only.

The second key to understanding the series and ensuring that a particular collection of books covers all models from a particular period is described in this post:

This may all look a bit complicated at first glance but it really is quite straightforward.
