    Well as far as I know it's the first time this book has been posted as it appears to of been published around the Patent Approval time .. The curious thing I note (or I may have missed ) was the total absence of the mention of Patent or Patent Pending as everyone back then was stamping or writing trying to keep copycats at bay...though we know how well that failed :) .. Just a observation and perhaps I just missed it .. I'll have to look for later company writings to see if they use it.... This was basically a sales brochure..but still ?

    Thanks, @reggi .... @Erin Holohan Haskell , here you go.

    Edit: It appears the Plymouth Hall apartment building, the only Baltimore location shown in the book, still stands at 1703 Madison Ave. I wonder what's heating it now?

    Thanks for sharing this with us, @reggi. I used to have one of those devices. I dragged it to seminars and had a lot of fun with it.
    Retired and loving it.

    Thank you for all your work in scanning this. The people who wrote books like this are a valuable resource, it's nice to have their wisdom on tap.
