Audel's Guide to Audels Guides

Advertisements from Audels books, for Audels books.

New Electric Library

Early ads for the New Electric Library list it as a twelve volume set. Later ads show it being only ten. Both volumes 11 and 12 were sold as independent titles, completely unassociated with the set. The New Electric Library was first published in 1931 and replaced the old Hawkins Electric Library.

Engineers and Mechanics Guides

This nifty 8-volume set was first published in 1921. With a few modifications, volume 8 was also printed as Audels Handy Book of Practical Electricity in 1924. This set was published until about 1948. The Handy Book, after a 1937 revision, was published into the 1960's.

Plumbers and Steamfitters Guide

A four volume set that first appeared in 1924, and was published largely unaltered until 1958.

Mathematics And Calculations

Basically the same book as volume 11 of the New Electric Library in a different cover. Although I do not have a copy, I get many e-mails with comments about how useful this book is to modern math students who have used it.
