THE FIRST BOOK OF TELEVISION

Basic principles of the mechanical aspects of television introduce the medium to the growing number of youngsters who want to know how it works. There are clear statements about the history of its development, the roles played by its various parts from scanning beam to image orthicon camera to the hook up for coast to coast broadcasting, and one follows carefully, the how's are all pretty well answered. Snappily illustrated by Lazlo Roth, the book also includes studio programming. Compare this with Jeanne & Robert Bendick's Television Works Like This (Whittlesey House- 1949)
